A Limerick, ' Bad Losers ' - Poem by douglas scotney

An advanced Advaitist of Vedanta
Won all the arguments he would enter,
But hadn't even opened his mouth,
When he turned and fled out of the house
Of bad losers who'd slay who they lost to.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Advaita: non-dualistic school of Vedanta philosophy
founded by Shankara (788-820) . Intellectual rigour
alone can lead to Moksha.
