The Death of Beauty?
Three wise men wandered looking for a sign
the first found Truth, though it was hard to define,
the second found Goodness in the heart of the Divine,
And the third found Beauty with its promise entwined.
All three gripped Humans as if elemental
So we thought ourselves transcendental
And Refusing to accept all is existential
We were driven by Desire
To seek Beauty’s potential.
Then somehow something caused a change
Goodness was locked in the Stock Exchange
So Truth was faked and reality estranged
Until Money killed Beauty
at the Devil’s interchange.
But what if God wasn’t really dead
and Beauty survived her deathly bed
And Money left Wealth for Kindness instead
Might we gaze the Stars overhead
And glimpse within a new path to tread.
