Sonnet: The Volcano Of Corruption - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

The evil nexus is a Volcano,
Erupting smoke and fire very oft;
Destroying gorgeous landscapes that we know,
And turning hard, arable land that’s soft.

Sometimes, it seems so indolent to look;
So, people build their habitats too near;
But when its lava, righteous men does cook,
It spreads around a psychosis of fear!

No one can put the volcano’s fire off!
It lives as long as people on earth live;
And smoke of granite, sulfur, it can cough;
To man and beast, lung disease, it can give.

God only tames this natural disaster!
Yet, prayers can bring solutions faster.
