Guru - Poem by Vivek Tiwari

O where has lost the word so bright
So tremendous and so glorified?
The storm of modernism- full tide
Swallowed our cultural depths to hide!
Depth to the bottom where all malice is made
Of all our creeds and sacred deeds!

The word 'teacher' may I apply?
Does this word (teacher) really tells that's (Guru) worth?

Oh no!
Not a bit in commercial greed.....!
Still more words are there to apply
The preacher, the the preceptor or again the teacher I say
'Pay the money and buy one', they say.

Whether a 'Guru' costs in coins?
Spending your riches can you buy one fine?

No respect, no honour, no seat
Use till needed, ignore when done is deed!
Oh no! Same it! Hell it aghast!
I dare not insult the post
No other word His state does worth
No match, no comparison can stand to deserve.
