    “UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    She’s back from the Pure Land—
    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    Liberating all beings whether in Jamaica or Japan—

    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    She’s a rainbow-bodied chibi-lady—
    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    Traversing infinite-space near-instantaneously—

    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    She responds to profound-distress no matter which bardo you reside—
    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    Rescuing roadkill before they’ve even flat-lined—

    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    She unlocks research-labs with her skillful means—
    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    Sparing test-subjects from the torments of experiments that haunt dreams—

    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    She busts loose those held captive in zoos—
    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    Freeing fauna exploited merely to keep humans amused—

    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    She won’t turn away even a pathetic person that neglects pets—
    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    Purifying eons of evil karma because everyone else also benefits—

    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    She’s got Great-Compassion for the Animal Realm—
    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    Enlightening those that the Fetter Of Ignorance overwhelms—

    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    She preserves the practice of Wisdom-Buddha dharma—
    UBER-BODHISATTVA-CHAN
    Guiding us out of samsara in honour of Samaya Tara—”

    This is the 2nd of two poems which expand upon ideas from the recent poem, “In The Imagination Of A Pedestrian”.

    [[[
    And the other piece that elaborated on that poem was "Here Come The Curbside Youkai"

    Hip-hop would be elevated into Hype Hope—”

    Updated the "Cloud-Paced Punctuality" poem:

    https://www.pso-world.com/forums/sho...=1#post3481793

    The newest version is now at the start of the post.

    (And it's amusing that even after releasing what I felt would be the definitive configuration for this piece of poetry... more variations STILL continues to come forth!)

    “What’s your response to my call—
    for personal-responsibility from one-&-all?—

    Because—
    it doesn't matter whether—
    you put your faith in heaven—
    or a politician—
    Cuz they’re both livin’ way up high—
    while you & I—
    and everyone we actually know—
    are struggling down here below—

    So it’s ridiculous that you tricked yourself—
    into thinking they would ever help you—
    when it behooves them to exploit & use—
    everyone who helped elevate them to that lofty altitude—

    Much like how I’m riding the waves of MP3 popularity—
    to crowd-surf across distant lands—
    all thanks to the people’s willing hands—
    Yet I already know that the second these peepz get bored—
    I’ll be dropped back down to the floor—

    So since we’re all stuck in this same rut—
    amidst so much muck—
    maybe consider that if you & I can’t build it on our own—
    perhaps nobody needs a so-called smart-phone?—
    and I’m not implying that you don't deserve it—
    in fact, I’m saying that gadget wasn't worth it to begin with!—

    You see, it's a culture of workaholic labour—
    that has brought about this current dystopian-future—
    where everybody busy earning a paycheck—
    isn’t actually innocent—
    cuz we’re all complicit—

    That’s because it’s only possible—
    for luxurious elites to never lift a finger for their own survival—
    when the rest of the pack are compartmentalized into a separate class—
    to fulfill every single individual task—
    while all they do is sit on their ass—
    and make wise-cracks—
    about the poor kids serving them snacks—

    However: If all the slaves gave up their wage-tamed ways—
    everybody, including that fabled One Percent—
    could return to foraging & farming & living in tipi tents—
    again free & fully independent—

    But it’s clear to me that nobody wants to go back to that—
    hence everybody bein’ trapped by their chosen vocation’s obligations—
    where the entirety of humanity is so sick, stressed & depressed—
    that we’re all thinkin: maybe it would be nice to join the dinosaurs in extinction—
    …rather than continue this tedious existence of pointless self-perpetuation—

    Lemme apologize if when I’m around—
    my every rhyme brings you even further down—
    cuz that’s not my intent—
    in fact, to prove the opposite—
    allow me to remind—
    that’s it’s not too late, we still have time—
    to live sustainably with real responsibility—
    and I’m not talking about total anarchy—
    only that the focus should have always been on your own community—
    not all these systematic schemes to control things through global conformity—

    And if you & I could do that—
    we’d finally pick up the slack—
    with friends & family in a new kind of pack—
    that doesn’t havta force the hands of the clock back—

    But this might be the last time we’re warned—
    before this whole planet gets burned—
    And I’m not talking about billions of years from now—
    when our Sun flips the shit out—
    Instead it’ll be because of modern society—
    when this out-of-whack way-of-life inevitably…—
    …ends suicidally—
    Guaranteed—

    Peace———”
