Keeping up appearances is wise.
Keeping up with the Jones is unwise.

Kool-Aid makes for a good drink.
Kool-Aid as part of a religious ceremony can make for a bad drink.

Tropical paradises calm the soul,
but sometimes Life in Guyana has its drawbacks.
Even when congressmen come to the party.

Sincerity and Zeal are good when married to good intentions.
But good intentions wedded to heresy lead to slavery.

Sometimes slaves wear Gucci.
But I don't think losing your freedom keeping up with the Jones in paradise leads to a meaningful life.

Or a long one.
