DUTY AND WORK!


Sun rises and sets everyday;
Moon rises and sets everyday;
Plough man ploughs the field;
Poets love to compose poems!

Some love to do duty well;
But many do only for profit.
How duty has to be done?
What do duty, work mean?

Duty is done expecting none;
Work is done expecting some.
Duty and work all have to do;
But duty, works are different!

Duty is life work for everyone;
Work is done to live life here!

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
