Sonnet: The Modern Man- A Pity! - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

The modern man stays vexed despite his feats;
Dissatisfied in life, he staggers on;
Astounding is the range of things, he eats;
He always figures, he must be the don!

He rolls on limousines, before he walks;
A celebrity’s life, he acquires;
With artificiality, he well talks;
Prematurely in life, he then retires!

The heart of man is never happy yet;
He ne’er listens to conscience at all;
His soul afilled with sins is hell-ward set;
He fails to heed to God’s endearing call.

’Tis late to mend his ways or make amends;
His earthly life, without God’s mercy, ends!
