Diogenes of Akron

on the corner of Buchtel and Fountain lives
a man who conquers Want
every day, he
wakes and yawns and
does not hurry to any work,
but has food to eat from passerby
and he does his nothing gladly, and it
benefits none,
harms none,
What Good American
could look upon this man,
with his absence of golf clubs and boating equipage,
his full belly and brandless clothes,
this man with no desire for More,
and think him anything but a lunatic
