these people

these people
interrupt my meditative stream

i pretend to listen to their flow of nonsense

i am considering the stillness
inherent in everything that moves

but my insights are crushed
by the babble of friends family world news

i breathe deeply
try to recapture the Realisation

try too hard
and it's gone

I'm back
and give my attention
to my loved ones

which is where i ought to have been

seeking enlightenment
is the most stupid ***** thing
you can do
because it sure as hell won't get you there
and you'll miss your kids growing up
and your partner will be bored
by your eternal navel gazing

so if you want to know the universe
try going to the football
with your mates.
