112. How to live in a time like this?

How to live in a time like this?
How? Just smile.
Lo, the world-suspicion-tiger is dead.

How to live in a time like this?
How? Just smile.
Lo, the world-blindness-elephant is dead.

How to live in a time like this?
How? Just smile.
Lo, the world-autocracy-lion is dead.

How to live in a time like this?
You fool!
Don’t you know that you are
The very root of the world-miseries,
The world-calamities,
The world-failures?
