English Poetry 17: Machinations Of Devil & Degeneration
Devil in man comes out craving for its food.
Man bows down to corruption and accumulated wealth
making all laws fruitless and ineffective.
People live lifeless lives and honourless lives.
Money earned is the criterion, not the means.
Education loses its luster and value.
Commerce thrives, intellect degenerates.
Mental pursuits become unremunerative.
Money buys everything relegating merit.
Honourless and worthless slaves thrive
at the cost of merit and nobility.
At Devil’s hands, Men become inhuman and heartless,
shed crocodile tears and turn callous to loss of lives.
People who deem it as their fate
when subjected to Adharma
and do not rise to uphold Dharma
are destined to live the life of slavery.
