My Karma Your Dogma

I'm sorry that my karma ran over your dogma

on the high road to enlightenment.

I couldn't stop my destiny from knocking down your ideology

and I know that dogma was your special pet.

You can let a dogma bark at all the passing karmas

but you should have kept your ideas on a leash.

Now the bare bones of your beliefs are lying in a sad, sorry heap

on a very existential street.

I'm sorry that my karma ran over your dogma

and my karma isn't very fast.

I try to watch for dogmas and steer clear of them if I can

but yours came out of nowhere and attacked.

I know how badly you must feel, your dogma crushed beneath the wheel

and nothing left for you to believe in.

A dogma can have bark and bite but against a karma in a fight

even a big, big dogma never wins.

I'm sorry that my karma ran over your dogma.

My karma didn't mean to hurt the poor thing.

I know sometimes a dogma can be a man's very best friend.

It's hard to let go of old thinking.

If you need a dogma you can get another one too

but of course it won't be the same.

If meta is after before and you metaphor when less is more

now you met a physical state that you can't change.
