Sonnet- What’s This World Coming To? - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

One foot’s enough to crush an ant most time;
But many feet unite to kill an ant!
What muscle-power’s wasted sheer in prime!
“How foolish men can be! ” the ant would chant.

Examples of this kind happen today;
Mob-violence is killing persons poor;
And militancy threatens, night and day;
Who will become the innocents’ succour?

And mighty nations crush the little ones;
The powerful all join to thrash the weak;
Attacked are men and women without guns!
The future of the poor nations looks bleak.

Unequals fight and challenge each other;
The rich is pitted against his poor brother!
