Applause - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

People will grow
More with applause
Than with rich food.

People will die
More for applause
Than for rich food.

People will die
More from applause
Than from rich food.

People forgo,
To get applause,
Their food in time.

People will spend
More for applause
Than for rich food.

Applause will do
What alcohol
Will, to people.

Applause denied,
Or food denied,
The body will wilt.

Applause is earned
To gather people
And select mates.

Applause feeds ego
And food keeps body.
Body is for ego.
