The sage avoids extremes, excesses, and complacency. -Tao Te Ching 29
Complacency: self-satisfaction accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies (Webster’s)
Working outside the lines, under the law
Waiting to see if the State will fall
See no evil, hear no evil,
Me and mine are doing fine
Don’t know if the taxes are feeding a crackhead
Or babies at school
Mom’s in prison, pops is a fool
Grown up knowing the deck is stacked
Got an Ace in your pocket?
Or a knife in your back?
Hollywood is a vice
Outside the box no one plays nice
Pass me the bottle, Mr. Jones
