Hey! How irritating this person is
Don’t you find them stupid?
Don’t you want to rebuke them?
What’s wrong with you, man?
Why aren’t your nerves active?
Let’s bulldoze this person with our superiority
The mighty fire of our snide remarks and anger
I smile at the monkey and pet its fur
My dear friend, let’s eat a banana
I’ll show you the might of kindness
The art of mindfulness
The thunder and lightning subside in my head
Like the calm after a downpour
As I politely deal with the irritable person
I see the monkey mind rescind into the background
