A Meeting Unusual

I met Ratan the other day,
he was the usual self
bubbling and cheerful
talking with a gusto
confirming with gestures.

Half of his talk
I do not understand
as he converses in a triple tone
without modulations leaving
the listener in a quandary.

He speaks of his power
and stature, harps on his wealth,
builds slowly a caricature
of himself, he an investing
guru like Peter Drucker.

My eyes gets stuck
my mind travels elsewhere,
his lecture continues
delivering an insensitivity
to both my ears.
