Cycle Of Life


When man is hungry -- he fights
When he fights -- he will grow strong
When he grows strong -- then he conquers
When he has conquered -- he achieves wealth
When he achieves wealth -- he acts philosophically
When he acts philosophically -- his spirit becomes gentle

When his spirit becomes gentle -- he accepts poverty
When he accepts poverty -- he is open to defeat
When he is open to defeat -- he is weak
When he is weak -- he is beaten
When *beaten* -- he is hungry

When a man is hungry ....

-- Bob Griffiths, Cycle Of Life (1993)
