What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

Wise and virtuous people are like golden pot!

Wise and virtuous people, even if they become poor,
they are always virtuous! The people who are wicked,
if they become poor, what will otherwise happen?

Likewise, the quality golden pot happens to break,
It remains the same quality gold! But if the mud pot
happens to break, what will happen? It is of no use!

தாழ்ந்தாலும் மேன்மக்களே சிறந்தவர்

சீரியர் கெட்டாலும் சீரியரே சீரியர்மற்(று)
அல்லாதார் கெட்டாலங் கென்னாகும் - சீரிய
பொன்னின் குடமுடைந்தாற் பொன்னாகு மென்னா
மண்ணின் குடமுடைந்தக் கால்.18 – மூதுரை
