“Many are Called but Few are Chosen”: A Poem by Santi Tafarella









Scarcity, saith the preacher, all is

scarcity, for the earth stays the

same size, and the dark oils of its

womb do not, like us, multiply.


Verily, God says,

verily offspring vary!

Verily they vary,

and verily they multiply.

Multiply! God says,

Be fruitful and multiply!

Let the strongest live

and the weakest die!
