Dr John Celes (14-2-1957 / Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, India)
The World of Paradoxes
Give and the world asks for more;
Ask and they just ignore.
But freely giving gives immense mirth;
And begging begins even for birth.
Spend and you get many friends;
Spent, and your friendship ends.
When moneyed people flock to you with smiles;
When bankrupt, they desert you for miles.
