The Better Guru

T.S. Eliot quoted Sanskrit in his famous poem
“Om shanti shanti shanti”

Meister Eckhart preached
“Only the hand that erases can write the true thing”

T.S. Eliot needed a better guru than Ezra Pound
Someone to arouse his bhakti

Someone like a nobody peddler from the East End of London
With a name like Henry Herzfeld

Yeah, imagine T.S. Eliot becoming a devotee of Henry Herzfeld
“Oh shema shema shema”
