Gentleman - Poem by Jaipal Singh

Swami Vivekanand
Clad in untailored saffron cloth
Was walking down once
In a street of Chicago,
When a lady raised
Apprehension with her kin
If he was a gentleman!

The swami overheard her
Unsolicited remarks
Walked up to her
And sought an excuse
To politely tell her...

While in her country
A tailor makes a gentleman
But in his country
It's the character of man
That makes a gentleman.
