Transmuting inconsistency into shibboleth
this man trademarked "enlightenment"
and sold mantras like hamburgers
in market-efficient ways
Seated on a deer-skin throne
surrounded by white silken sheets
he learned how wonderful
it was to market "reality"
Twisting Shiva's dance
he saw spiritual aspirants
as business clients
While videos rolled
and cameras clicked
this guru mesmerized audiences
into paying big bucks for bliss
