Ten Thousand Years Have Gone

Faiths and philosophies? Games
Played to evade simple truths.
Don’t believe me? Ask Yáng Zhū.

We know what’s coming of this.
I know what’s coming to me.
You know what’s coming for you.

The Buddha got it half-right,
And maybe so did the Christ.
The suffering part feels true.

But guidelines for salvation
And emancipation? Rules
Made by faux-sages to fool.

You don’t need me to tell you.
You’re in possession of truth
As far as truth goes; it’s true.

If you want to seek the truth,
You’re looking to escape it.
You know it’s true. Ask Yáng Zhū.
