Lesson of L33t

A darkened dojo, the air heavy with incense, chords from a sitar in the background. An aged Junpei sits at the center of a ring of pupils, imparting a lesson.

Junpei tell you - of secret world you never knew,
And of ninja - who hide themselves within shifting worlds of shadows,
Never see us there - until it far too late - then we fade away-ay-ay.

Junpei stalking - through night in Megatokyo - no one find him,
Use new l33t skillz learn from master - new l33t skillz,
New l33t skillz - from enlightened one - Largo-sensei teach-each-each.

Junpei realize Largo Daishi ownz him with his Mortal Kombat skillz,
And know lotus flower grow from l33t-on3'z butt,
While l33t flows on within you and without you-ou-ou.

Junpei sits in lotus posture, eyes closed, seemingly lost in visions, as the sitar plays mystical passages. Presently he leans slowly forward, and an odd, guttural purr seems to emanate from his vicinity. The students look at each other; one seated behind Junpei stretches his leg forward and carefully nudges him. Junpei sits up straight, looks about him, then continues his lesson.

Junpei look for - Largo Daishi in the MegaGamers store,
Find there Sony and Sega black-ops team,
Crushed their weapons - it was instinct - Junpei so sorry-ry-ry.

When you find your teacher - then you may find enlightenment is there, or not,
And the time will come when you see truth of l33t,
And l33t flows on within you and without you-ou-ou.

Now the entire group is lost in meditation. Presently Junpei resumes his wordless mantra, and is imitated by his students.

(Profuse apologies to George Harrison, even though he had it coming)

Within You Without You

We were talking-about the space between us all
And the people-who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion
Never glimpse the truth-then it's far too late-when they pass away.

We were talking-about the love we all could share-when we find it
To try our best to hold it there-with our love
With our love-we could save the world-if they only knew.

Try to realise it's all within yourself no-one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small,
And life flows within you and without you.

We were talking-about the love that's gone so cold and the people,
Who gain the world and lose their soul-
They don't know-they can't see-are you one of them?

When you've seen beyond yourself-then you may find, peace of mind,
Is waiting there - and the time will come when you see we're all one,
And life flows on within you and without you.
