The Buddha on the Political Pundit

My children, do not growl yourselves hoarse
snarling back at the victimized ideologue

who knows everything about everything
except introspection. Find peace, my loves,

in providing him the pleasure of listening
to his favorite voice as it returns to his ears

like a forlorn lover through the hollow
nothingness of his pablumatic absurdity.
