Hafiz, a 12th century Persian poet in the 1300s, wrote this. Maybe it’s just the translation, but it’s so fresh it could have been written this morning.  Have you ever found one of the keys the sage drops?

The small man
Builds cages for everyone
He
Knows.
While the sage,
Who has to duck his head
When the moon is low,
Keeps dropping keys all night long
For the
Beautiful
Rowdy
Prisoners.
