45. Why am I such a fool?

Mind is transitory,
Yet I love my mind.
Alas, why am I such a fool?

Money is transitory,
Yet I love my money-power,
Alas, why am I such a fool?

Desire-life is transitory,
Yet I love my desire-life.
Alas, why am I such a fool?

Earth-crown is transitory,
Yet I love my earth-crown.
Alas, why am I such a fool?
