WE COME WE GO
(a monkpunk tale)
By Sir Eido Boru
a Celtic Buddhist Bard

Conditions were right
BIGBANGTHEORY
dark dust sunlight
Earth looks dreary
asteroids smash
comets crash
perhaps the cause
of extinct dinosaurs
birds on the wing
hear them sing
treeclans
orangutans
multiman
black white tan
the historic flood
lots of mud
comes Gautama
his dharma
precepts and karma
DONOHARMA
soto zen
deep meditation
Chogyam Trungpa
celtic lamas
the abrahamics
so calamic
many many wars
lots of gore
much manic
pure panic
mass lunacy
romantic fantasy
music 'n' art
horse 'n' cart
steam trains
aeroplanes
man on the moon
spacejunk strewn
satellites
into the starlight
conditions now bad
gone crazy mad
WORLDWARFOUR
we are no more

 

COULDA

(a monkpunk tale)

By Sir Eido Boru

 

It never happened

but it coulda been fun

if Syd Vicious* met

Buddha the Enlightened One

Syd coulda screamed

An obscene song

Buddha coulda talked

About right and wrong

 

Syd  coulda yelled

About blood and hate

Buddha coulda told

what’s  good and what’s great

Syd  coulda ranted

About bullocks and junk

If they sat together

You coulda got Monkpunk*

 

*Syd Vicious was a member of the UK band “The Sex Pistols”

*Monkpunk is an irreverent verse which can be rude, crude and ungrammatical

 


LIKE MANY OF YOU

(a monkpunk tale)

By Sir Eido Boru, a Celtic Buddhist Bard


So you still skirl

the ancient bagpipes

but wear designer kilts

with green stripes


So you sing

“Oh Danny Boy”

with tear filled eyes

and much sad joy.


So you drink a bottle of

the Tullamore Dew

and many pints of

the Guiness brew


So you grow prata*

all over the place

and cabaiste* too

for added taste


So you have marshy bogs

but there’s little heather

to cross these quagmires

is a great endeavour


So you have read

James Joyce and Oscar Wilde

their tales are famous

with such excellent style


So these literary genii

they aren’t Scottish

like many of you

they are Celtic Irish
