“Defense is superior to opulence” – Adam Smith

Word of the weekopulence (adjective) – great wealth or luxurious. Synonyms –  luxurious, richness, splendor, grandeur, splendidness, poshness, swankiness.

 methinks the highfalutin

ensnared in a pompous

and pretentious world

 a longing for swankiness,

 bric-a-brac, and trinkets

lives of glorious opulence

 hoity-toity types so

me, myself and me

seems there’s disinterest in

spiritual, and cultural values

most unfortunate for society

    An allure which became a poisonous desire, we need a cure from. What became satisfaction, turn into an addiction.

    We get mesmerized by the glitz and get ensnared in the web.

    Eugenia,

    Your last three lines…

    seems there’s disinterest in
    spiritual, and cultural values
    most unfortunate for society

    really say it all as to where we are today and I couldn’t agree more disinterest or connection to spiritual and moral values today is upsetting to say the least. Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed week!
