To Gaji - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Kubera invited Siva to his feast.
Knowing why,
Siva sent his son instead.

Ganapati ate the town dry.

Kubera said of Siva:
'He's a wiser man than I'.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

thanks for revealing your nick-name Gaji.
Ganapati was like any son brought up by an ascetic.
