Pure water

is already being bottled;

Fresh air

will soon follow suit.

Similar fate


the great intangibles:

take euphoria and happiness.

Tell me,

if all the education

and upbringing

has not diminished

sorrow or hatred

but has only increased it,

can you fault the millions

hauled up for drug abuse ?

Is the day really far off

when your GP,

after scribbling his customary “Rx”


that on rising, every day,

you drink a glass of pure water

with one capsule only,

of, say, dopamine, or

serotonin, or

oxytocin, or

endorphins ?
