100 Words About the Zen Blues
Got the Zen Blues baby
This monastery is congenitally unfriendly
My ass hurts from inadequate pillowing
Ain't had nothing but broth for four days
Dave says I'm close to a breakthrough
Dave's in for a breakthrough if he doesn't shut up.
Man the bottom's gonna fall out of my bucket
But I ain't gonna learn nothing new, no one does;
Only learn the mirror language
Where you parrot the master
Learn it well enough he won't kick yr ass in.
One of these days I will grab that stick and
teach some lessons of my own.
Until then, count breaths.
