Philosophy For Life

 
When I was like Hippos Go Berserk!
no guide to show me the way
I was the untethered soul
immersed in Zen Meditation.

Though not quite Turning Japanese
decided on A Trip to South America
maybe discover my own
Book of Thorns replacing my youth
& Pocket Pal
with  my Pocket Zen.
 
I did managed to uncover
The Hound of Heaven
amidst Sapiens in the  
Southern Hemisphere
guiding me
to a new type of Philosophy For Life.
