MAHATMA GANDHI


A great person of peace,
Who to all wars called a cease,
And who prevented bloodshed,
And who India to freedom led.

A lawyer who was in Africa,
And who racial discrimination saw,
He solved the problem there,
And then, he, Indian problems laid bare.

He fought using non-violence,
In senseless people he put sense,
He led India to greatness,
And he India thus did bless.

He pushed the British out of our land,
To the ordinary people he lent a hand,
A greater person never did walk this earth,
To a greater person never did India give birth.

A great solver of problems he was,
He was never at a loss,
To give an answer to problematic questions,
He was the only one to say no to guns.
