SERMON OF LOVE AND PEACE

Paramita Mukherjee Mullick
For aeons wars have been fought.
Kings have killed thousands to conquer new lands.
But the frail, old, dhoti-clad man,
Has conquered hearts around the world.
With his sermon of love and peace.
To end all cruelty and all violence cease.

For years peace treaties have been signed.
The heads of countries have met to bring harmony
But the man who led the Dandi March,
Brought harmony and tranquility around the world.
With his sermon of love and peace.
Bridged all differences and smoothened the hatred crease.
