Vanity in Vacuum

people, people, people,
people everywhere.
people talking circles,
sometimes in a square.
chatter, chatter, chatter, chatter,
chatter causing crime.
chatter people, people chatter,
tongues in overtime.
minds seem blank with idle chatter,
eyelids rarely blink.
people, people, chatter, chatter,
too engrossed to think!
people chatter, chatter people
chattering life away;
futile chatter, barren people,
wasting every day.

    So True. Much more productive is chattering to God in prayer. Fr. Ray.
