Miseries Everywhere - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

He alone holds reign, who is the king.
He is the subject of no rule of law,
Which he makes to his whims.
Loyalties alone have entries.
Thrown overboard is honesty.
He owns all his subjects own.
Every circle is a kingdom;
Everywhere surrounds misery.
