Buddha Was A Long Haul Trucker... - Poem by Eric Cockrell

i dreamt...
Buddha was a long haul trucker,
and i met him in a roadside diner...
i asked him:
'where you been? '
'everywhere! '
'where you going? '
'nowhere! .
'well. what you hauling? '
'well...', he smiled.
'i was hauling myself,
but i unloaded that
back down the line...
now i'm hauling nothing! '

i bought him a cup of coffee,
and walked away,
silently shaking my head!

    Yep, it's good to channel our inner Buddha sometimes and de-stress. (Report) Reply
