Damnation

Who can stop a baby from crying?
Who can stop a man from dying?
Who can stop a bird from flying?
Who can stop anyone from lying?
Speak out your heart with no reward
speak what you like, speak it loud.
Let the world know what you are speaking of;
poverty, corruption, caste and creed.
Is this what you call man's good deeds.
I'd crush this pen with no regrets
the greed of man unto death
is all I fret.
Money and wealth to top with good health
is all man desires and only aspires
to be great, rich, witty and wise.
Indeed, indeed for the big prize
to become immortal after life.
