THE ASIAN HOLY MAN


"He looks like a llama," I thought at first sight --
With two-foot long hair and nails,

A tame snake was coiled around his arm --
Venomous, and all that that entails,

There were servants to wait on him hand and foot,
They worshipped him -- such a high caste,

They both would need help with their daily do-do,
With such fingers he couldn't wipe his asp.
