Sonnet: Isn’t Something Really Wrong

When man just fails behaving like a man,
When humanistic norms are thrown to wind,
When man puts others like sardines in can,
His conscience and soul, he did rescind.

When force is used on hapless men in sleep,
When age and cadre, don’t mean anything,
When in the name of duty, all can peep!
Where have the basic rights gone for earthlings?

Which society treats all as criminals?
What is the use of hard won freedom then?
When there is access not to urinals!
We better are called ‘beasts’ than rather men.

Don’t be a beast while doing your duty;
A humane touch gives every man beauty!
