Ed Brown

A dull knife will not cut, 
Nor a cracked bowl hold water. 
Putting your mind and body in order, 
How useful everything becomes. 

Looking for the knife 
Which is not there
How hard to find. 

Washing rice, kneading bread, 
Chopping carrots, peeling oranges, 
Slicing pickles, saving crumbs, 
No time for living, no time to die.
