Losar Poem by Jacqueline Gens & Artwork by Ingmar Pema Dechen

Year of the Male Metal Rat
Behold the brazen strut
From high minded big-mouths
Amid sharp shooters
And illusory masters of material gain
Smart know-it-alls before lesser peers
Beware the molten hook of unkindness
With its sting of indifference
Such bold lies
As visible as that ratty tail
Take a moment and mingle your mind
In the vast expanse of openness
Simply forget yourself and take
A leap into the greater good
Home at last!
