i've seen them kneel

with baited breath for the ritual

i've watched this experience raise

them to pseudo higher levels

i've watched them leave their families

in pursuit of your nirvana

i've seen them coming to line up

from switzerland and america

how long will this take baba

how long have we been sleeping

do you see me hanging on to

every word you say

how soon will I be holy

how much will this cost guru

how much longer 'til you

completely absolve me

i've seen them give their drugs up
in place of makeshift altars

i've heard them chanting

kali kali frantically

i've heard them rotely repeat your

teachings with elitism

i've seen them boastings robes and

foreign sandalwood beads

i've seen them overlooking god in

their own essence

i've seen their upward glances

in hopes of instant salvation

i've seen their righteousness

mixed without loving compassion

i've watched you smile as

the students bow to kiss your feet

give me strength all knowing one

how long 'til enlightenment

how much longer 'til you

completely absolve me
