Sporting funky jewellery, I speak with a drawl,
I’m more than just my saffron ‘dhoti’ and shawl.
Stone studded rings adorn my hands,
Don’t doubt it; I can do a mean head-stand.
I have manicured nails and grey dreadlocks,
Love marigold garlands and my ‘holy pot’.
Do take note of the mobile I tote,
If my clients didn’t call me, I would be broke.
I have an old companion, who keeps me sound,
If not for my B&H, I would have gone underground.
I’m setting out for the city, have a long journey ahead,
I need some retail therapy and to earn my bread.
Don’t be fooled by what’s written about me
I am a mere, modern-day ‘sanyasi’, you see!
