Dharmas

decoding the cipher of dharmas
the pecking order of eggs and chickens
the solution is found resting
on the back of an elephant

ask an Englishman if it’s tea time
or if the sun will set on his empire
Atlas who bears the weight of it all
has to stand somewhere, in this maze of

endless Russian nesting dharmas, and
it’s elephants all the way down
so set aside your decoder ring
and let’s have a spot of tea, shall we?
