MANTRA


MANTRA
I went to buy a pen
And asked the sales woman
In a lighter vein
“I’m going to pen
A poem; the best of my writings
Give me that green one
After sanctifying
With a mantra of your religion
Or that of mine”

She replied with a humble mien
“I know Sir, no mantra, no hymn
God, the Almighty will
Take care of all”

I said with a smile
“Thanks! I liked this mantra”
