  to stall
rivalry
among the people
stop
promoting
some
as better
to keep
the people
from stealing
stop
praising
rare goods
to calm
their hearts
never show
whatever
can arouse
desire
the wise
govern
by filling
people's
bellies
emptying
their hearts,
building
their bones,
waylaying
their wills
this forestalls
the clever,
balked
by inaction,
so peace
reigns.
