Sonnet: A Nation In Chaos
When freedom got is misused by those freed,
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
When citizen has nothing to call ‘his’,
When fellowmen’s lives are ignored indeed,
How can a country forge ahead like this?
When unity is just a namesake word,
When divisions are by caste, status, creed,
When civilized men behave like man-herd,
And millions poor remain and cannot feed.
When scams in crores happ’ning are written off,
When justice is denied or much delayed;
When corruption is rampant, yet all laugh,
And labor sans dignity is ill-paid.
How can a nation, people say they’re proud?
‘Accursed be they’- my heart cries out aloud.
