The Bodhisatva Vow
Is to liberate all living beings
Through compassionate rebirth
Countless times.

[click here for audio]

Sounds nice
But seems to me
To be in need
Of a reality check.

So please excuse me,
This heretic of his crimes
Of plain speech
And coming across
Politically incorrect.

The Bodhisatva Vow
Is a high alter of glyphs
In a temple of beautiful jewels
Built on foundations
Of bone, salt and ash

From the sacrifice of the body of history
In the flames of well-meaning myths.
