An Esteemed Person

As a yak in Himalayas happens to lose
its thick fur-like hair during winter season,
It can't survive and die due to heavy snowfall;

Similarly An Esteemed Person,
if he happens to lose his modesty,
shall die if the lost modesty is regained!

Is there Any Esteemed Person nowadays?
Many persons who attended CBI enquiry
are in Tihar Jail and are still alive!

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
