Sonnet: Prudent Use Of Time - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

People save time by traveling so fast;
Important is time in these modern days;
Never do they learn from mistakes of past;
Nor do they change their old unhealthy ways.

The time that’s saved is precious, so be it!
But people waste it in some wretched ways;
They do not change an improper habit,
Leading a lazy life in any case.

Stress and most diseases originate,
When work is done in a manner of haste;
Luxurious lifestyles too bring on a spate
The precious time that’s saved goes to sheer waste.

‘Time and tide wait for none’, ’tis truly said;
Time improperly spent lands one in bed.
