Song for the Boring Scholar

Oh boring scholar

You’ve come so far

What are you searching

Far away from home

 

Is it fame

To build your name

In the boring circle

Of elite intellectuals

 

Is it power

To make others lower

Their heads and hands

Under your speeches

 

Is it wealth

To fill your shelf

With trophies and books

And golden ornaments

 

Is it knowledge

To become a sage

And be the one

Who claims understanding

 

Oh boring scholar

You’ve come so far

What are you searching

Far away from home

 

Oh boring scholar

Where is your heart

Does it still beat

Crushed flat by your books

 

Oh boring scholar

Where is your mind

Is it blind

To its inner workings

 

Oh boring scholar

Where is your soul

Does it still ascend

To transcend the world

 

Oh boring scholar

Will you ever attain liberation

Freedom from craving

That realization of Nothingness

 

My dear scholar

To climb the mountain of Truth

You have to drop your books

Lighten your soul

Follow your heart

And release your mind

There will a point in time

When you have to take the Great Leap

 

Maybe then you’ll reach the summit

Or maybe you’ll die trying

The path to Truth is indeed hard

Choose wisely my dear scholar
