The Tao of John (for David Hicks)

In order to be strong
Make somebody weak.
To be at the centre of the crowd,
Make somebody as lonely outcast.
To gain extraordinary privilege,
Deny somebody their rights.

Sacrifice a man in the outer world
Keep a man alone and tormented in a cage.
He will mirror the inner man you have sacrificed.
Thus pain will balance pain and end all feeling.
As you have controlled yourself
So you shall control the world.
