A simple man
who wore
next to nothing
in protest
and in sympathy
to his beloved people

The man believed
in non-violence
truth, peace
and universal harmony
said, he has nothing new
to teach to the world

He was only human
yet, he was a saint
The mighty empire
bowed at his feet
not from fear
but from his love

For all the evils
the empire had done
he believed
"Return with gladness
good for evil done"

No words can match
what Einstein said
"Generations to come
will scarce believe
that such a one as this
walked the earth
in flesh and blood"

With the name of God
on his lips
third shot rang
and the great man fell.
