"I know my Lord, you certainly deem my demand
Ten thousands a month plus a mansion unreasonable
A mark of my greediness deserving your reprimand
But I'll prove that to be just and most reasonable.
The real Prabhu bhakti bursts out, when one is at ease
Mark it, physically, financially and intellectually
'Seva' refuses to be weighed against currency like peace
Reasonable comforts hasten it to the boss faithfully."
"I see reason in thy argument and dignity in demand
It'll be granted, if only your word culminates in action
That is enough, my Lord, and now I'm in thy command
Prepared to discharge duty to your utmost satisfaction.'
"Take that mansion and here is the ring signet
This instals you as minister and fulfils any need,
Works it more powerful than the earthly magnet
So join duty and see our country soon be freed."
