When a guru’s not engaged in meditation
A-reciting of his mantra for the week,
His capacity for infantile inflation
Is enough to drive disciples up the creek.
He will take the girls aside for tantric yoga
While celibacy is ordered for the chaps;
If he starts behaving like an angry ogre
He will claim its just to make your pride collapse
Oh, with all this yogic practice to be done,
A disciple’s lot is not a happy one.
