“Haughty-naughty”

*****************

In colleges and schools, there are multifarious activities,

Besides teaching, celebrating occasional-seasonal functions !

Annual Day, Republic Day, Freedom Day like festivities,

Teachers and students gather like passengers in junctions !

In marriages, holy-thread ceremonies or any National Festival,

Literary meets, Art Concerts, Exhibitions, Games or Cinemas,

Or identical red-letter days, whether celestial or terrestrial,

The ‘haves’ well so rejoice and ‘have-nots’ ever face dilemmas !

In all spheres, we may well witness disparities among people,

Elite class ever seemed giving others radically a wide berth,

By occupying separate box-seats over and above a houseful,

With a view to invariably visualize their well wealthy worth !

Such elitism is tantamount to pontificate haughty behaviour,

People of the lower classes enviously beseach naughty career !

Haughty attitude is most common in elite sophisticated females,

Who are ever egoistic to prove superiority through boastful tales !

Similar attitude is well observed by the silver-tail haughty males,

Unmindful of their poorest ancestral entity from which any hails !

Middle and lower class people are thus constrained to be naughty,

To defeat, however, such haughtiness when it is felt too pretty !

Such quandary of disparity is apt to manipulate havoc many times,

Through commotions, revolutions and resultant strikes or crimes !

It is hence enjoined upon the elites to dissuade disparity so seen,

To create harmony and tranquility which all humans may esteem !

Bragadocio on account of elitisms or else is not an eternal boon,

However rich anybody may be born mouthing a silver-spoon !

The ultimate is its dismissal by ageing or edging time of  life,

In which state everybody sustains idly irrecoverble strife !

    Beautiful poem of essence
    meaningful pondering in a sense,
    Has good advice and lessons
    Not exhibition but moderation is commonsense
    For the poem…Commends

    Unfortunately, what makes it mostly a problem is that it is at the expense of the have-nots whether income tax-free or ex gratia from the public purse,
