People Would Generalize

There are beggars who’re millionaires,
So the real ones miss sympathy.
There are actresses who’re liberal,
So the modest ones lose reputation.
There are bureaucrats who’re corrupt.
So the honest ones are branded alike.
Your mischief costs your tribe, that includes you..

This is a thought provoking poem. All of us have been guilty of this kind of generalisations. It encourages us to see people independent of how people in similar jobs and situations are. It encourages us also to lead by example, making us aware that our own mistakes will not only affect ourselves, but possibly many others. Great poem.
