An Ordinary Fool - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Do you think really they are fool?
Do you think they are playing tool?
May be they are real masters
They are examples to the doubt casters

Honest suffers but they always gain
Our sincere efforts go in vain
We fail to understand what is actual art?
We look fool and they look smart

It is custom of the society
You may find them in good variety
They have their own way to pursue
They get it easily whatever is due

What are sugars coated words and sentences?
You can sight many examples and instances
It is something said in individual’s praise
You won’t be able to judge or doubts to raise

This is how they gain the foot hold
Make the assertive bid and look so bold
You will be mesmerized to believe
It is world of fools where we live

Why do we blame others for our ignorance?
They are doing it in our presence
We know it well still fail to take notice
They stand to gain and look very wise

It is fine if you can turn the table
You should be bold enough and capable
No one can influence you if you are alert
We should not allow anybody to subvert

It is not game but simple mastery
There is no trick or mystery
We are yielding to mental slavery
It is not sign of any bravery

it can y be considered as momentary set back
It will not compel you to pack
You may get wind easily out of it
You may safeguard and feel very fit
