into the kula

Into the kula 

Scott released another song
into the kula,
and as it made its way
from living room to living room,
folks began to imagine
a different way of living

♫ ♫ ♫

Upon seeing that his fridge
was bereft of beer,
Scott headed down
to the local bar

Hey, Scott
That new song of yours is pretty good

Thanks, brother

A folk song about fringe folk
It’s inspired the whole neighborhood
to be just who they really are

Right on

What’ll you have?

A pint of dark

Excellent choice
I’ll have one too

And so Scott and the barkeep
drank and talked
for a while

♫ ♫ ♫

Evenin’, Scott

Hey, man

You gonna sing tonight?

I just came by for a beer

Beer is comprised of non-beer elements

And a song is composed of non-song elements

That it is

Sounds like you’ve been listening to Thich Nhat Hanh

He was in town last week
and I went to one of his talks

My glass is empty of beer

Mine too

Frank, could we get a couple more pints?

Coming right up

Thich Nhat Hanh is alright

Yeah, he’s pretty cool

Everything is interconnected

And impermanent

This beer and I interare

And we are drinking mindfully

Perhaps it’s time for a song
Mind if I play the house guitar, Frank?

She’s been waiting all night for you to ask

So Scott got the guitar and tuned it,
and then began to play
Coffee in the Morning, Beer at Night
