Ask Him First

 Ask Him First 
By Buddhadasa Bhikkhu

'Count to ten' whenever strong emotions arise:
naturally you'll transform bad moods into good.
In other words, before doing anything foolish just
'ask her first,' I guarantee the meaning's the same.

Ask him first — ask who? Don't you know?
Ask the Buddha, that's who, in your noble brain. 
She'll answer straight, full, and true every time.
No need to stay sad and gloomy till you die.

When about to be angry, greedy, or foolish,
when possessed and spun into a nasty spirit,
before hitting your child or leaving your spouse,
you'll never go wrong to divine heart and body by
'asking him first.'
