Red water

The water of this river

Is red.

But I am black

In colour.

And you are going on

Discriminating.

Still, I care not.

I care not,

The colour of the sky,

I care not

How deep the ocean is.

And I am here as usual.

The thing is I am here

To take care everything.

The air is there,

So also the light.

The sun is coming

And going without break.

I am not asking about

Your dress and related

The wholesale rate.

Of course, I am to

Abide by the rules,

But for what

I know not.

I care not

The duty of priesthood,

True.
