Words Raise Head - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Words seem hollow
When they allow
Falsehood to succeed
And give importance to greed

Words then raise head
Give clear indication to lead
Deception becomes main tool
Its only aim is to fool

People fall in trap
They fail at each step
Finally come to that they are cheated
Fallen victim to words so sugar coated

Ordinary man always fails to impress
He has no connivance on face
He has only helplessness to reveal truth
No one believes him, his words or both

Words can play mischief
I can help only thief
Noble people always suffer
As they have only honest words to offer
