you wish to reap.
Tipping the scales of eight
to pad your pockets of power
will only be tolerated for a season.
When Karma tires of your game,
you will discover counterweights
can be a bitch.

Mama Zen at Real Toads has us using the number 8 for inspiration. It could be used in whatever manner we desired. I chose to take a look at the meaning of the number 8 in numerology. I discovered the number is the great Karmic equalizer, a force that just as easily creates as it destroys. Many people tend to only look at its money and power properties and neglect it balances the material and immaterial worlds.(btw ~ my poem contains 38 words)
