Part Time Buddhas

We’re part time Buddhas,
Jesus Christ on a stick
just add water for instant redemtion
with blood to taste.

We are gastric anomalies
of biology
who live to eat
and write poetry.

Ignorance is customary
and we both seem to be
encased within the cages
of our self made misery.

From bugs to belief
we carry our grief in our genes
and struggle within the geneology of mediocrity
for the right to be ordinary.

by Paul Bourgeois
NS/19 April 1995
