Ripened Melons

When that old patriarch Dogen Kigen uttered
That phrase Body and Mind dropped off some
Ancient Zen worthy should have taken their
Slippers off and slapped Eihei up side the head

Instead the Soto school let that old fart get
Away with planting flowers in the sky growing
Endless twining vines choking off perfectly
Ripened melons untainted by human hands
