on bondage, from owl and friends


bondage is merely a belief

who’s the believer that buys this belief?
who’s the prisoner that’s bound
– or not, for that matter?
who’s the victim needing salvation
or enlightenment?
where oh where can this ‘who’ be found?

who hoo t’whoo? asks owl
closing his bigBuddha eyes for the day
bally hoo bally hoo! says dove
getting on with getting on
wank wank wank! scolds willywagtail
enjoying his morning splash-about bath
(and ensuring it’s empty for the late-comers)
