You are the Buddha

Here is a translation of a kannaDa poem I wrote. (Here)

If hirsute growth is the measure,
you are a dullard for sure

If saffron robes and religious marks are,
you are uneducated for sure

If you can't fool with eyes half open, weaving meaningless words
you are an idiot for sure

If you can't fleece and give nothing in return
you are poor for sure

Don't worry, if you look at all such charlatans
with skepticism, you are the Buddha, said Omar
