The Boys Are Back In Town*

Lao Tzu, advocate
for withdrawal from power,
advocated for justice.
Jesus, Confucius, Plato
and Aristotle nodded
affirmatively, with
qualifications,
of course.
The Buddha
just sat
there
smiling.

*This poem started out as
a tanka then just took on
a life of its own. I forgot
to include the Buddha, so
there he is just sitting at
the end of the poem.
