It was an era
“It was an era,” the Zen Master said,
“of mystical songs.
But one stood out: the Beatles
‘Let it Be’—
an almost perfect combination
of Christianity and Zen.
‘Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be’
is a mantra.
‘There will be an answer, let it be,’
especially the way the song
dwindles down to nothing at the end,
but you still seem to hear the words.”
