20 Women And A Monk - Poem by Roger Bewman

20 women lookin’ at him
they didn’t realise he was drinkin’ Jim Beam

they twisted his beliefs
with nasty griefs

they planted a seed
of evil deed

20 women laughin’ at him
they didn’t realise he was close to Him

they poisoned his body
wrinkled his heart

they molested his past
and tore apart his future

A monk lookin’ at them
He didn’t realise they wanted his gem

He made them believe
With holy prosaic weave

He planted religion
With iron maiden legion

A monk laughin’ at them
He didn’t realise they were close to M

He drained their fire
Forfeited their lust

He vortexed their past
And illuminated their future

    Roger, I gave you a Mark of ''10''...just for the title, alone.
    (I wish I had another ''10'' for the poem.'

    The title is hilarious and spurs alot of.....
    ''Gee! I wonder what's this poem's about! ''
    Wonderfully entertaining!

    Good one, Roger! !

    Awesome.........he was a real monk.
    One of such incidents, occured when Gautam Buddha (founder of Buddhism) meets a prostitute in the dead of the night.
    Also, there is an incident of Haridas Thakur (Vaishnava Namacharya- Great Preacher of Holy Name) is tested by a prostitute. He converts her heart and makes her a devout religious woman.....
