Sonnet: The World Is Topsy-Turvy
Where has it gone, the brotherhood of man?
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
Where is the love that man has for neighbors?
What is the use of intellect and ken?
Man’s heart is selfish; others he abhors.
Oh, what a selfish world we dwell here-in!
Who cares about the poor man on the street?
The modern culture has taught men to sin;
’Tis rare to see two friends in friendship meet.
And militants target innocent lives;
And Nature too is cruel to poor men;
And Naxalites demand ransom with knives;
The world today is nothing but a den.
When Man does not think of the other man,
Become the world a better place, how can?
