Oh Varanasi

Be ready
For Varanasi

Complex Layers
Traditions Stand
Holy City
Furnished with rubbish
Of the Land

Holy Cows
own the streets
Never go hungry
With the scraps they
Eat

Saddhu’s bless
Ask for rupees
Lining the Ghats
In the river
Ganges

Muslim, Hindu
Buddhist, Christian
All denominations
In the city of
religious wisdom

Burning bodies
Ceremonial Chimes
Dhobi Wallah’s
Wash in
Ganges lines

Indian people
Fight for existence
Living, just living
No fighting
No resistance

Varanasi
So raw so real
If a Hindu dies here
Nirvana the
Deal

Oh Varanasi
You’ve a life beating flow
Let’s me sink into your depths
let’s see
How deep I can go
