Musings: Good Time to Believe in Reincarnation

water1aThis would be a good time to
Believe in reincarnation because as
You’ll see karma isn’t real.

Give me your future, I said,
I’ll invest it and we’ll prosper
And rejoice together.

But now I have to tell you
The well has gone dry,
Your future evaporated.

You, I fear, must ration your
Water and wait for the rain to
Come again to re-sow your crops.

I must now tend to my
Plentiful stores of water and food.
I Will return with the rains.
