I saw a fridge magnet the other day that said 'life is what happens to you why you are busy making plans'
That poem has a way of saying everything and nothing all at the same time, sort of in a chaotic zen sence which reminds me of this!

A monk was being chased by a fierce lion when he slipped over the edge of a cliff

Holding onto a vine he looked down into the ravine below, only to notice a lioness waiting to devour him

At that moment two mice came along and began nibbling through the vine that held him

It was then he saw a grape also clinging to a vine, he reached out plucked it and placed it into his mouth

The taste was sweet
