The Buddha Wears Camo

The Buddha Wears Camo

sometimes the Buddha wears camo
and carries a Colt 45
sometimes the Buddha’s a cowboy
a Bodhisattva in disguise

sometimes she’s a warrior
other times she’s a saint
whatever I think the Buddha is
I’m pretty sure it ain’t

the teacher’s always before us
the path beneath our feet
sometimes the Buddha’s an old friend
sometimes we just meet

when we see the guy in camo
or walk past the woman in red
sometimes the Buddha’s waiting
for us to get out of our head
