The Smearing of Ash

A parody.

I prefer solitude to gatherings
peace and tranquillity to gossip and dissent
that is my way.In spite of being so,
I had to participate in a function.
Exasperated, I moved beyond.
Mona,  took centre stage.
For once tense, he seemed ill at ease
as if taken up by a malignant spirit
he began his discourse.

The smearing of ash on the forehead.

chanted panchakal mantram
panchaprabha mantram
and shadhanga mantram
all in a topsy-turvy.

His lengthy monologue
turned a farce.

It was a mockery
of The Holy Bhasma.
He continues his rant.
It is a ramble of an incoherent mind.

Mona’s sermons,nowadays
make people run away from him.

Oh! poor Mona, what shall we do with you,vibuthi
to parody scriptures that way.
