Reverend Crane came to a meeting once again and asked, "Do Buddhists pray?"Verse
Raven asked, "To whom?"
Crane said, "Well, to the Buddha Macaw, I suppose."
Raven asked, "Where is the Buddha Macaw?"
Crane said, "Where is she? Can you identify her place?"
Raven said, "For sure. Just like anyone."
Crane said, "Well, I'm like anyone, and I can identify my place. That really doesn't answer the question."
Raven said, "It's all it takes."
