Sonnet: The Fool - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Who would prefer to hit the ball same side?
Who loves to accept defeat without fight?
Who would knowing rules, by them not abide?
Who would prefer darkness to that of light?

Who would give birth and try to kill one's child?
Who would betray his master who feeds him?
Who prefers severe punishment to mild?
Who would want life to turn gloomy and grim?

A fool will keep his body, mind, unclean!
A fool will risk his life for stupid things;
A fool may think, he can do sin unseen;
A fool self-praises his follies and sings!

Who would dare climb an electrified fence?
Who would not pay heed to his common-sense?
