HERE’S THE DILLEMA

Here’s the Dilemma

 

Here’s the dilemma:

 

as in the cartoon,

you’ve fallen over a precipice

and are hanging onto a tree branch for dear life

with just your teeth.

 

If you would be rescued, you must call

but to call, you must let go.

 

Does the Zen Master hear?

Or is he too busy eating his persimmons?

 

-Dick Allen
