Healthy Sign - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

To have wealth is healthy sign
Man stays comfortable and feels fine
Status goes up and people respect
But all that depends on his charitable act

More of wealth and less of health
More of worries push us to death
Similarly money power is tolerated by less people
Fools act more and show its pleasure on face

That drives you away from common man
Terms you arrogant and sometimes inhuman
You carry no feelings for poor and sick
They may wish sometimes kick to you

You fly in air with arrogance of wealth
But that happiness seems as stealth
You invite more of burden
And blood pressures sudden

Empire is created
And with king of kings you are equated
Sometimes richest in world with ranking
But your ship is really sinking

Your children dislike you
No one wants to heed advice and go through
You are lying in corner
And wishing a death so sooner

Stay near to god and be liberal
Bend like fruit tree on wealth’s arrival
It may honor your stand
Get you fame and name till your end
