Elixir of Immortality

I wish I had the elixir of immortality,

That in the Mahabharata was saved by Mohini!

From the thieving asuras,

And distributed it amongst the Devas.


I wish I could attain immortality,

Safeguarding youth smartly!

I am not foolish like Sybil in “The Waste Land”,

Neither am I over-excited like Tithonus in the end.


I know that immortality is a delusion,


For man it is not an apt solution!
