Rumplestiltskin

Physically, resourcefully
The argument for quotas is clear,
The destruction is near
The supply is restricted
The people in charge cite
Chapter and verse
The money wields its stick
Academics quote facts about theories.

Quoters sometimes make quotas.

There is no quota on the Love of God
There is no quota on the Peace of God
There is no quota on the Light of God ….

Unless you immediately feel the need
To quote to me some important source
To put me in my place,
That masquerade of your place
Of loss of hope, of faith, of innocence.

There is no quota on Hu (as) Man, ‘Be’ …. ing.
