////ONLY SOIL IS LOYAL


Why are you vain
O hollow man
Do you know?

These useless piles
And clever guiles
Would make you bow

They would gust
In form of dust
As volcanoes blow

You would be not
More than a thought
So do not sow

Thorns in the soil
That would recoil
Although slow

Think of the earth
The pain and mirth
That would glow

Might be you are royal
But would go in soil
Its the constant flow

O the man hollow
soil is to follow
that you ever plough

    The theme behind the poem is a powerful one, that no matter how great a man, we will all return to the grave. No matter how big a castle you create around yourself, it's no more than a glorified casket! Nicely expressed! (Report) Reply
