Sonnet: ‘world’s Celebrities? ’ - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

O world-famous figures, Celebrities!
What use have you been to the common-man?
Your life got spent in alluring cities;
Your selfishness tilts down the weighing-pan.

O, how much wealth need you to acquire?
And how much wealth can you spend on this earth?
And how much wealth do you utmost require?
And how much wealth can give you immense mirth?

Just think awhile, the world has such poor souls!
Half-naked silhouettes with famished frames;
Could you not put your wealth to better roles
And see the ‘Book of Life’ record your names?

Your progeny can’t sleep on money-beds!
Excessive wealth can turn them mere block-heads.
