MUNI



Living in a shed
With a disturbing world ahead
Muni, the wise teacher
Has a lot to lecture
And plans for missions
To save troubled nations.
Segregation on caste and colour
Have replaced the days of valour
Such discrimination is a vice
Now alarmingly on the rise
So, Muni in a white robe
Trod across the globe.
Children smiled and followed Muni
To the open fields of harmony
There Muni preached to resist
The evils their elders persist
And with a sense of purity
Children swore for unity.
Isn't Muni an embodiment
For peace across each continent.
