327. We are helpless

You cannot meditate,
Yet you speak
Of God day in and day out.
You cannot pray,
Yet you always
Pay lip service to God.
Meditation I did
Continuously,
For many years.
Prayer I did
For many years,
Long before you were born.
What can I do?
God has made me
Your unfortunate teacher.
Alas, you are helpless,
And so am I.
