Beauty and Brains

‘All that glitters is not gold!’

Yet it is believed and often told,

That ‘A thing of beauty is a joy forever’,

Then why does a beautiful woman need to be clever?

For the lovely Lida, Lord Zeus turned into a swan,

Consequently, the beautiful Helen was born.

She became the cause of the Trojan war,

Alas! The great Greek men thought she was worth dying for.

Cleopatra had all the mighty Romans at her feet,

For Beauty’s sake poor Honour has often acceded defeat.

Then why should a 'Beauty’ bother her brain?

After all she’ll get everything without any toil or pain.

Oh! Heartless cynic dost thou know?

How hard it is, to get that galvanizing glow?

A nymph like frame, is not easy to maintain,

To look beautiful, the 'Beauty’ has to use her brain.

Hunger and temptation, she willfully desists,

Exposure to the sun, she judiciously resists.

Carefully, she observes every facet of fashion,

Exercising is her biggest passion.

Alas! She cannot always look like a mermaid,

With time, beauty does fade.

So, of her life, she takes the responsibility,

Nourishes her mind and polishes her personality.

It is written in accounts, authored by wise men,

That Helen and Cleopatra were both interesting and intelligent women.

‘The Beauty’ has now trespassed, the former male domain,

So the desperate dotard decries the 'Beauty’ who uses her brain!’

Anything in excess is bad,

But an excess of wealth, never makes a mortal sad.

Alas! A human being is never satisfied,

His needs, wants and desires are rarely ever gratified.

A humble abode, he always resents,

For comfort and relaxation, he needs a luxury apartment.

Expensive gems and gyms, take care of his health,

Friends and females, flatters and fine people, are all lured by his wealth.

Designer clothes and accessories affect his deportment,

People hesitate to meet the wealthy man, without an appointment.

To his servants, he assigns all his work,

And greets everyone with a smirk.

He makes rules for others to abide,

After all, the best friend of wealth is pride.

Alas! Wealth cannot buy real respect, love and friendship,

If not used properly it always causes pain and hardship.

Remember friends, wealth befits only the wise,

For others it sponsors and supports all manner of vice.

Mother Nature

Spare some time to praise Mother Nature,
And she will ensure that you have a happy future.
Remember, she loves to avenge her ill-treatment,
Earthquakes and eruptions, floods and forest-fires are but shades of her temperament.

So plant more herbs, shrubs and trees,
Clean the rivers, lakes and the seas.
Conserve water and electricity,
Reduce the pollution in your city.

For an animal its natural habitat is the ideal,
Life in a cage is nothing but an ordeal.
Hunting and poaching laws must be revised,
Those who use animals for entertainment should be penalized.

Plants, animals and human beings are the fruits of God’s imagination,
Their harmonious co-existence gives him immense satisfaction.
You have a duty towards posterity,
So preserve nature with all your dexterity.
