HIGHEST MONUEMENT EAST
East possesses many monuments,
But those who reckon these, reckon ill,
The pyramids and the TAJ are beautiful
And the Chinese wall is great. Accoutrements
Of ill – begotten whims and armaments
Of ruthless kings are these, who could ride
With hob – nailed minds, herd poor gents
And trample them to nothing. Put aside
With venom human feelings at their will,
These glittering, great legacies, I deride,
Of boorish boobies; beautiful but still
I cannot look at them with any pride.
No monument is higher in the East
Than “ Bhagwat Geeta” ancient tombs the least.
