Price tag


“There is price tag for everything but one “legend says
Even dog has price tag if needed by someone
You have everything in open market
They will make everything to let

Even honesty is on sale
People are set out on bail
Money plays important part
Principles are made to depart

What is not sold today?
You pay and get away
Certificate for study and judgment for case
Only some money has to be parted in such case

You pay under table
You may have no trouble
We are all prisoner of greed
We have highest need

Each man has his value
He may certainly ask his dues
He is sold for cheap rate
Here he seals his fate

Only one person refuses to surrender
He is man of principles and always differs
He shall prefer hunger with respect
He shall never be sold for his noble acts

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
