I am a Senior Devotee

    Posted on October 10, 2017

Sunday feast
Bang that drum
Have some fun
I am a Senior Devotee

Then the food
Pure veg of course
Chat with friends
In shorts and sneakers
Sports, jokes, light talk
Don’t drink beer here – Cola is OK
I am a Senior Devotee

Now don’t you young guys
Be judgmental 
Don’t try to tell me anything
I was chanting
When you were in diapers
I’ve done everything, seen everything
You should learn to respect me
after all
I am a Senior Devotee

We’ve seen so many like you
All gone
We used to be like you
Young, idealistic, serious
You won’t last 
Now we are mature
If by our age
You still hang out at the Sunday feast
In shorts and sneakers and laugh and joke as we do
You’ll be doing pretty good
Got it?
We are all Senior Devotees

(Written by Bhakti Vikasa Swami)
