Belief Leads Us On

The pursuit of happiness

provides a simple delusion

that happiness exists; and

that, if we continue chasing

blindly behind this empty

flag, we shall one day trip

over it as over a rock,

and fall into eternal bliss.

So, we run on, full of purpose

and dread, as if encased

in a cloud of angry bees.
