The swamp and the businessman

A parable:

A real estate developer promises to drain an oversaturated property to increase its value. Absent scruples, this businessman fails to make the substantive changes that would allow the land to remain habitable for more than a season, for those changes might cut into his profits.

After a short season of dry weather, the land begins to flood as the rains return bringing despair to those swindled into investing and building upon false promises.

Let those with ears hear. The foundations we build upon matter.
