lowest of the low

remembering the example of an old cow:
she's content to sleep in barn.
you have to eat, sleep, and shit--
that's unavoidable--anything
beyond that is none of your business.
do what you have to do,
and keep yourself to yourself.

you're as low as the lowest,
so you ought to be humble
there's a whole hierachy above you,
so stop being proud.
you shouldn't have too many close associates
because differences would surely arise.
since you're not involved
in religious and political activities,
don't make demands on yourself.
give up everything. that is the point!!
