The Man with Words Of No Word and Actions of No Action (My sundry thought generated by Tao Te Ching)

The Man with Words Of No Word and Actions of No Action
(My sundry thought generated by Tao Te Ching)

he,
who is
but a fool,
loves to raise his excellent point which proves
he is always damned right,
and all what he has been saying is genuine.
everyone else
is
deadly wrong
their talks are either rubbish or fake.

in reality, he absolutely
has no point
to raise
however, he don’t care about it.

he is sitting on the top of this world,
holding his increasingly big ego,
thinking everyone must listen
as he has too much to talk.

if we slightly open your mouth
trying to raise a point
which ain’t straightly
in line
with
his thinking.
it promptly drives him insanely mad
he acts like a child in his worst tantrum:
flooring, kicking, punching, shouting,
and crying foul
with
endless
nonsense words.

if we react in silence
either
like an intellectual
who has many great points to convey
however he prefers to keep it for sake of not falling into argument
or we follow a Zen master’s footsteps
by closing our eyes
and going with the flow of nature.
he would mistakenly interpret as a sign of our weakness
so he continues abusing us and wrecking our lives
by
his insane ideas
and reckless actions.

damn ’us if we do listen to him, damn’ us if we don’t
either way we’re stuck
he leaves us
no
choice
but to get rid of ’im.
