Sonnet- The World Believes In Pomp And Show - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

The world believes in pomp and outward show;
Most things are done from business point of view;
All things are sold and purchased for some dough;
Human misdeeds have gone beyond review.

For everything, there is a strategy;
A lot is spent on merchandise-display;
A lot of things are done technically,
Involving waste of time, labor some way.

Enthralled are men by external appeal;
None cares about the future of his soul;
They want their bodies to mostly reveal;
Their ambition is just an earthly goal.

When will man come out of all this turmoil,
And trust in God much more than his own toil?
