I Fall Low. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

I look down on them
To whom I am elder,
To whom I am senior
Or to whom I am higher.

I look down on them
Whom I feed,
Whom I pay
Or whom I pity.

I look down on them
Who come for help,
Who come for alms
Or who come to borrow.

I’m not high.
So as to be high
I make them low,
By which I fall low.
