I pity the fool

For seeing education as nothing

Not ready to attend college

Nor learning a craft, trade

Still hopes to be great

Waiting for Miracles

Hmmm!


I pity the fool

For ignoring anything wrong in robbery

Defying the security, the law

Snatching others' property

Killing men just like fowls

Forgetting the Waterloo

Hmmm!


I pity the fool

Believing not in tomorrom

Believing only in today

Believing not in God

Behaving like a god

What a pity!

Hmmmm!


I pity the fool

For not forgetting the wrong of others

For not forgiving his friends

For stoning his minds

Aiming others' regret

Sadist, wicked


I pity the fool

For failing to say just I'm sorry

At the instance of wronging

A good fellow, a good wife

Allowed the relationship 

Crash beyond remedy

 Prematurely


I pity the fool

Believing so much in himself

Not ready to change his mind

At the instance of superior argument

Concluded he's an island of knowledge


I pity the fool

For not knowing that isolation kills

Never sharing ideas with others

Confides all things in himself

Takes no advice from others

Living like a recluse


I pity the fool

For not believing in giving

Enjoying his wealth all alone

Never foresees the unforseen

Disagreeing that tomorrow is pregnant


I pity the fool

A big tree looking down on a young one

Thinking every condition is permanent

Oblivious of the unexpected

Toying with his future

Acting ignorantly

Hmmm!


I pity the fool

For importing fake drugs into the nation

Wherein his family members reside

Always happy about the proceeds

But also witnessing their death

Only daily basis

In succession


I pity the fool

For voting in a wrong candidate

For peanut and bottles of beer

Claiming that he has collected

 His own shares of democracy

Forgetting tomorrow

Advance in penury


I pity the fool

For not investing his income

Not saving for the raining days

Spending like a father Christmas

Without minding the aftermaths


I pity the fool

Who despises the little beginning

Waiting for blessings from others

Hoping to become a panjandrum

Loves to live like a popinjay

Acting like an upstart

But remains stagnant

I'm sorry!


I pity a fool

For expecting others to pay him back

'Cause he's helped them in the past

Nagging, lamenting, complaining

Not ready to agree that

It doesn't work that way

All the time


I pity the fool

For neglecting his family

At the mercy of concubine

Feeling on top of the world

Covering his foolishness with lies

Unknowing such enjoyment is fugitive


I pity the fool

For not fulfilling the electoral pledges

Now making himself unaccessible

Giving untenable excuses

Siphoning public funds

Hmmm! Unbelievably 

There is another life 

After power


I pity the fool

Calling himself a clergyman

Duping members in the name of God

Acting in contrary to the scripture

Twisting the words of God

To suit his selfish interest

Upon ephemerals

All is vanity

Hmmm!


I pity the fool

Who doesn't prepare for the hereafter

Appreciating materialism in excess

Soaking deep in mundane affairs

Walloping in ungodly acts

Amplifying blasphemies

Celebrating sacrileges

Sponsoring evil shows

What a shame!

What a pity!

Hmmm!
