Look at all those poor tibetans up in the highest hills in the world -- do they have the answers...........doesn't seem so.
Tibetans always seem to get dragged into conversations like this! :P

I realize this is poetry but just to ruin the fun I'd like to analyze this stereotype for a second.

Poor Tibetans In what sense? Are we talking monetarily or as in "I feel sorry for those poor Tibetans"

up in the highest hills in the world True they are the highest hills. But are you talking about the monks who are actually not in Tibet anymore or poor Tibetans?

do they have the answers What was the question again? Tibetan Buddhism may offer many things but anyone with a cursory knowledge knows it does not offer "answers"
