491 – Disillusion

No way in,
No way out,
Just singleminded
Blasphemy.

Nowhere to run,
Nowhere to hide,
From buried wrongs
Unearthed.

No charming smile,
No silver tongue,
Can silence unleashed
Karma.

The gilded palace
Rose high,
The foundations
Were rotten.

Let it blaze and crumble,
Let the golden Buddhas burn,
Let the scriptures be forgotten,
Let the ashes scatter.

When nothing’s left
But solid ground,
Perhaps we can
Rebuild.
