Civilization is another danger.
The shell of civility covers many rots.
It gives the beast room to rut.
Room to grow.
Room to stalk.
And a merchant unwise is one who does not ask.
To desire to gain coin.
The coin of respect.
The coin of gold.
The coin of Power.
The coin of silver.
All coin can be desired and corrupt.
And trust is fertile ground.
As fertile for rot as it is for growth.
You have to watch to see which is going.
But where there is trust there is no watching.
Where there is watching there is no trust.
Where there is no trust.
Rot is difficult to set in.
But so to does growth have difficulty.
