In the secluded mountainside
with the huts and dirt roads
I found a wise old woman
who claimed to know everything divinable.
Who cares what the Western world might be doing,
what with all their work and stress and keeping up with the Kardashians,
when you could live in zen and peace here,
ascertaining everything there is to be ascertained
Being shut away from the first world is underrated;
have you ever met a modern-day monk?
