Bottled Up

Many times in many words
it has been said - Coke® is Great.

Yet maya is powerful & people forget
the Source From Which They Came.

Once I cut through all allusion
& tasted the Original Celestial Drink.

Then Through the Grace of Corporate Law #250395-630-9
my Third Eye was Opened
& this revelation came:

Pepsi® is O.K. on occasion
and 7-Up® isn't bad
but Coke® alone
is effused with bon mot
transcending all notions
of Being or Naught

Coke® is a perfect metaphor
for existence:
Absolute Bubbling Emptiness!
