The bloodshed and the poverty
of a weary n' strife-torn humanity.
The Mahatma won’t want to see
Wall Street' s corruption and apathy
that's sapping dry the US economy.
The Mahatma had better not see
educators aspire to mediocrity
and dwindling student alacrity.
The Mahatma shouldn’t have to see
the manifestations of ethical paucity
in trends and choices bereft of nobility.
The Mahatma mustn’t want to see
the end of human virtuosity.
Then why replace Gandhi's glasses? That’ll let the Mahatma see!!
