Bow “Tao Te” Wow

 Dogs live and breathe,
and so must have a soul;
but how they nurture the
spirit is a story untold.

Are they Christian, Muslim,
Buddhist, orthodox Jew?
Protestant, Catholic, Free
Spirit, or Eastern Hindu?

They never stand up, kneel
down, chant, or lay prone;
One might think them pagan
for they love to eat bone.

They never preach dogma,
doctrine, religion, or creed;
ask tithes to build churches,
to care for others in need.

Their religion’s a mystery,
they provide so few clues.
If they were to pick one,
which might they choose?

The answer’s quite simple.
How could we not know?
No matter what each day
brings, dogs go with the flow.

Chasing after a Frisbee, or
just doing their own thing;
all dogs seem to follow the
path of Tao Te Ching!
