The Buddha Lady Meditates
The lady in the classic Buddha squat
must have rushed out her bedroom flat
newly risen and likely half-awake
and barely dressed to publicly meditate.
In halter bra and shorts so small,
her cheeky crack looked out to all;
Dressed, I grant, to beat the heat,
but hardly what you’d call discreet.
I doubt she’s reached that happy state
where pain and pleasure evaporate,
are cancelled out, the gurus say
by consciously thinking all away.
So there she squatted empty of mind,
while gawkers fixed on her behind.
The Buddha discreetly robed front and back
unlike her no one got to see his crack.
