the zen trials


my zen gets tested everyday
what is zen? work or play

is the glass half full
or is it half empty
I look and I see
that I have plenty

I see the dog has no patience
when it comes to eating
devouring my shoe, I pat his head
rather than give him a beating

the water faucet drips
an annoying sound
I submerse myself
in its constant pound

a man speeds around me
and my slow moving car
he raises his middle finger
I'm number one, a motorist star

I stub my toe and I'm
not sure what to do
be as silent as a zen master?
no, I yell out, "my toe is now blue."

new tests will come
the grades aren't kept in a file
measuring the progress
of my zen trials
