According to Buddha

In all truly sacred traditions there is an essential resolve to cherish life and treat others ethically and kindly. All these traditions encourage us to be open to divine presence, both within and without, and tell us ‘to practice what we preach’ without hypocrisy or sleight of hand. For many, this message is of essential importance no matter who is carrying it.

and you will bring a smile right to my face

down where the gulls dance driftwood lying drying for the fire
yellow beak and sleek now the gulls are crying flying higher
out from the sea came a little green crab
taking the Sun the morning being very drab
old rusty cans, pebbles ‘bedded in the sand stand and stare

a spaceman came travelling on his ship from afar,
’twas light years of time since his mission did start,
and over a village he halted his craft,
and it hung in the sky like a star, just like a star

down the ditches a thousand years
the waters grew ira’s peoples’ crops
’til the white man stole their water rights
and the sparkling water stopped
now, ira’s folks were hungry
and their land grew crops of weeds
when war came, ira volunteered
and forgot the white man’s greed
