Septuagenarian saint and teenage devotee
We are all born with enough virtues and vices
We are not either a saint or a sinner, but both
One’s life could be changed with a right advice
We are the carriers stocking bad and good both.
A saint arrested of raping a devotee young girl
Now all other girls who were raped in the past
Were offered high jobs in Temples many to swirl
Come out in forefront to blame the saint at last.
One of the girls who was raped in the year 1998
Enjoyed the high position for more than a decade
The saint a Guru, and the devotee the girl in gaiety
Who the saint who the sinner or both in charade.
Inspired by ""Every saint has a past, every sinner has a future."
