All Fools Paradise (A Life Poem) - Poem by Harindhar Reddy

An infant grew into a kid with joy
The Kid developed into a school boy
The Boy matured as a Youth,
The Same youth turned into a scholar
Ha! Ha! Scholar is climbing a ladder!

The Scholar became a poet bold,
The poet became a teacher for dollar!
The teacher flew a marathon, aftermath,
Having armed Ferric sword and shield of gold!
Ha! Ha! Poet is fighting for a ladder!

With the knowledge at his side!
Tomfoolery from the other side,
The poet fought a losing battle,
With loser as a title!
Ha! Ha! Ha! Poet is falling from a ladder!

In this world of plastic smiles with no emotions,
Yet smear their face with tons of lotions and potions!
In this world of artificiality, when the fools run a day,
Living with Knowledge is not a way!
Ha! Ha! Ha! The fool is sitting on a ladder!

    Truly, in this world of fools and scholars,
    it's difficult to understand the true personality (Report) Reply

    Well, you said it to the whole world. World will realize, some thing wrong some where. Yet, nothing pragmatic may happen. Whom to be blamed.......? Still, feel happy about one with a heart. Enjoyed. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful and realistic poem showing that knowledge gained by a scholar is not sufficient to make him successful in the world. He may fail to amass wealth and get a comfortable life. Enjoyed reading. Thanks for sharing.10 points. (Report) Reply

    Very nice poem, a funny poem is a hard poem i come to know, but you managed it just right. Lifes worries diminish with right attitude and this right attitude is using the humor way. Life is hilarious if you see it that way. It plays tricks and jokes...

    enjoyed reading it. (Report) Reply

    We grow in knowledge...
    Here I can see a biography, not about others, but yours, only the good part! ! !
    I don't like to read it as a humourous poem even if it's flashing humour at the end lines, , ,
    An excellent poetic touch, I can feel here..
    Top marks! ! ! (Report) Reply

    I find relatable humor in this poem. Now, at the count of three, lets all kick over that sad old ladder! Ten out of ten- if the site ever registers my vote. (Report) Reply
