Zen II

Sow fear and confusion
among the enemy ranks,

then sit back
and laugh.


Laughter is a noise.
When the enemy can hear you,
laugh as if you laugh last.

It won't matter.
Either you won't know the difference,
or you will make it so.

Zen IV

While they look within,
encircle them.

When they look without,
strike from within.

Cut off the head,
scatter their force to the wind.
