Buddhist Monk Sits

Buddhist monk sits

In front of the Buddha effigy he meditates

Along comes a morally impoverished soul

Who spits on the effigy and does not hesitate

He looks at the monk

Awaiting for a reply

“You spit I pray” says the monk

Without turning a blind eye

The moral of this story

Those who try to spit at heaven

The spittle does not defile the target

But comes back down upon his own vile facial expression
