there is a towering orchid in my study
i spoke to its beauty
and it said “kneel”
“i am the lord god”
i started to laugh and it shouted “kneel”
“i am the essence of buddha,
i will teach you the truth of peace.”
i started to answer and it screeched
“kneel” “kneel” “kneel”
all weapons will melt immediately
the entire world will kneel and weep
for all that should have been done
kneel and cry
for all the innocents
that have suffered and died
the towering orchid stands majestically
i thought it was a dream
but i am still kneeling
wake the innocents, tell them to rise
the magnificet orchid is waiting
