  Make many digs
Mugs and bowls
Howl and scowl
High Court roads
Know all Bengalis.
Body cut into two.
Pieces-

Flee Bengalis
From east to west
Punjab and Bengal
Refugees overflow.
Partition scenes
Red-hot glows.

Against imperialism
Up in arms were
Both States
Scattered seeds
Around the world
Punjabis and
Bengalis found.

'Bhangra'
Fit in here, fit in there.
Singh or Jut Punjabi sings.
Chant in 'Gurudwaras' hymns.
Bengalis Noble Laureate's culture brings.
Besides, Durga worship never forgets.
Moreover that they were forced outdoors
And like the Germans cut into piece
They seem to resemble them in their stinks.

'Mache-Draht Zaun'
East West Germany however unites.
Stinky seedy secret in tiny grain lies.
Please let no shockwave choke the brain.
Eat sausages with mustard sauce pungent.
Enjoy cooked mustard leaves with
Cornflower bread; baked lobsters in curd,
Coconut, mustard oil, paste - Delicacies, that
Minds of son in law, rake.

Not is mustard savored taste.
Bengalis; Punjabis relax
Mustard oil, body rubs.
German experiments mustard aromas Enhance.
Buddha promises 'Kisa Gotami' to revive her child.
Ask 'A little mustard seed, from any house, by death unaffected find.'
Fervent search such fails.
She learns all are fugacious blossoms.
Impermanent - Frohnau Berlin Edelhofdamm,
founded Dr Dahlke Buddhist Home;
today, tourist attracts.
Also a German Dr Schmidt Leave legacy in cash to the society of non-violence.
Mustard seeds episodic.
