Nirvana comes... when conscious-mind is still.
It can't be learned, ordained, nor got from pill,
nor can it be called-forth through act of will.
When folk ken each born all each needs to be...
folk shall cease to kowtow... or be lackey.
Then each... shall live-rest-of-life happily.
Religion... Mankind's great tragedy;
minds enslaved by contrived phantasy.
