Hollow bodies

hollow bodies with golden garlands
amazing human form of richness ­ outwardly

inworldly ­ many disputes, pride, jealousy, fame and glory

these days money buys you anything but happiness,
your true inner nature should be worshiped in gold

oh this world, material world, please come to an end soon.
this deluded aeon is in its full blossomness

as the nature of everything is impermanence
that’s why looking at this display is a joke

a joke that brings smile of compassion rather than joy in gold.
