The Golden Deer

First Published in Different Truths, September 2020


 The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane
  — Marcus Aurelius

 To you a paean mankind should sing
 give you the place of a Queen

 Condemned by life is 
 King Lear. Insanity borne of loss
 forgets the life that links 
 Man to the Superman

 forgets the inherent Divinity
 that defines life outside
 the little boxes of unhappiness 
 caused by manmade divides —

 people marginalised —

 Instead of seeing what they have,
 they cry for what they have not

 The golden deer that 
 led to Sita being kidnapped 
 remains trapped in phyletic minds 
 as the ultimate annihilating goal for all mankind
