COSMIC HORSE RACE

WHERE DID I COME FROM AND WHY AM I HERE? WHERE AM I GOING? WHY IS IT UNCLEAR? IS THERE ONE WITH ANSWERS LISTENING TO PRAYERS? AM I SIMPLY HERE FOR AN UNSEEN SOMEWHERE? IS LIFE JUST A GYM WHERE I SIIMPLY WORKOUT SWEATING AND GRUNTING AND HIKING ABOUT DOING BI'S AND TRI'S AND THIGHS TILL I'M BEAT GETTING A SICK PACK AND THEN I'M COMPLETE? WELL, I AM FAMILIAR WITH MONSIEUR DESCARTES PASCAL AND ROUSSEAU, SHAKESPEARE AND SARTRE I'M ONE WITH BUDDAH, WITH YIN AND WITH YANG GOT FAITH IN JESUS, ALLAH AND THE GANG IS LIFE JUST A HORSE RACE, BEST TO BET WIN OR LOSE AND FAITH THE WINNER IN THE GOD THAT YOU CHOOSE? IT'S ALL PREPARATION, A NOBLE PURSUIT? AND HEAVEN OR HELL, THE REWARD, WHAT A HOOT.

I LOVE this poem, but especially this line, for its pure casualness, and universality. "GOT FAITH IN JESUS, ALLAH AND THE GANG" LOVE this!
