Tenzin Tsundue has been detained

Tenzin Tsundue has been detained
By unavoidable circumstances
He regrets that he will not be in time
For tea and dhokla
No T Square for him
Tenzin Tsundue
Won't be perpetrating
Such anti-national stunts
As a satyagraha
At the Sabarmati Ashram
We have our dandi ready
Should he attempt to march
Tenzin Tsundue
Won't be be jumping
In on Jinping
Or lowering large banners
And embarrassing the Über Rai
Tenzin won't be at the table
When we put out the good porcelain
He won't be be bringing
His bhool
Into our china shop
Tenzing Tsundue
Won't be walking to Lhasa
No Apso factor
For the running dogs
Of democracy
Tenzin Tsundue
Won't be causing
Any undue tension
Tenzing Tsundue
Has been detained
