MacDougal and unhappiness

THE KOAN

In his new role as Quality Commissar, MacDougal observed a lesson and found it to be pants. How to tell the teacher that his pants were soiled?

“You’ve got a nice rapport,” he began, “But there are a couple of things I noticed that you could possibly do better.”

Now the teacher is scowling.

MacDougal thinks we all want to do better. But why is the teacher crying?

COMMENTARY

MacDougal was not a boss boss. Doing his best often resulted in the worst. But the worst of times were the best of times. Or were the best times the worst? Debate rages on to the east about where to find the best wurst. The west is burst. These are all just words. Just, worst, burst, wurst. Of course, there’s nothing “just” about words. No words, no world. Wait! That’s not true.

Is it?

THIS BE THE VERSE

I might be a king and steal my people’s things
But I don’t go for that power-crazy way
All that I could rule but I don’t check for fools
All that I need is to be left to live my way
(Say listen what I say)
