Sonnet: This World’s Most Men - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Man is a schemer, treacherous clumsy!
Oppressing and suppressing his neighbors;
Thieving and giving excuses, flimsy;
Living in vanity, wasting his hours.

Some lead an unscrupulous life till the end;
Some live by sleight of hand and deception;
Some live a miserly life, ne’er to lend;
And some are dubious right from inception.

Some lead a life insensible, sensuous;
While, some are despots craving for power;
And some are selfish, jealous, and cautious;
Some live a life of wine in a bower.

Yet, few abide by God’s tenets and code;
These are the ones who will reach His Abode.
