A monk and his gong 

Quietly sat 

Outside of his temple 

Watching the slow

Orange sunset 


Across the world on Wall Street 

An atheist made a list 

Of all the things that 

He would do 

Before he is dead 


The monk saw the clockwork of stars revolve in the night 

And reached for this masterpiece 

With his mind’s eye 


The atheist briefly gazed East

At a timid sunrise 

Through the pane of his window 

In a tall grey sky-rise 


The old monk found his peace 

In starlight divine 

The atheist had a heart attack 

And simply died
