Metta for a Psychiatrist

by Mark Chmiel

May you be filled with loving kindness
For the kids on the edge of urban doom

May you be well
Unfazed by the hourly bureaucratic hoops

May you be peaceful and at ease
Before the inferno of institutional inanity

May you be happy
For the benefit of each human-miracle-being you see

Gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi svāhā!
