21. Don’t go near him

Don’t go near his body.
His body houses
A blind and wild elephant.

Don’t go near his vital.
His vital treasures
His conceited misanthropy.

Don’t go near his mind.
His mind loves
His fabulous eccentricity.

Don’t go near his heart.
His heart has lost
All its pristine purity.
