It is true that there is never any profit
In discussion of The Truth
All ideas that arise
Are snuffed out in the end
So why do we want to deliberate The Way?
To deliberate is to de- liberate, indeed.
At one time I enjoyed such discourse
And I dined upon it at every opportunity.
Now I see that every mouthful
Only fills your gut with misdirection.
Who needs that?
It is like a secret –
To hear it, you must be very quiet
Lest you hear incorrectly
And misunderstand it all.
