Two-Day Fair

Related imageWhat did you bring to the world?

What will you take away? It’s all just a two-day fair

You don’t have many days to stay, traveler.

And you still take pride in false identities

—riches, youth, and appearance.

You came with closed fists;

you will have to open them when you leave.

It’s all just a two-day fair.

—Traditional Nepali Song

    this reminds me of a song 40 + years old, often heard on the radio, called “Have I Stayed Too Long at the Fair?” ..once exciting, the fair is now too boisterous to enjoy…don’t stay too long there. cc
