artificial cities II

I pay my taxes, I separate
the garbage, I don't watch TV
for five months, everyday
I pray at least two hours
with a book on my knees,
I never skip a family visit,
I always use public transportation,
I rarely forgot to put fresh water
in the cat's dish, I try to be correct
with my neighbours and don't spit
in other's shadow.

I don't remember if the doctor
told me that this was the recommended
prescription to save the world or only
to be happy. Be that as it may,
I don't see any results.
