Burning Bribery


A never ending chain
Enlarged its web
From ground-floor to roof-top
Of each building
Everywhere in our society.

An inerasable stigma
An incurable infection
Leading to corruptions
Here and there, all over
In our modern era.

How shame!
Laws and orders made,
Promoted lectures, speeches
And social awareness,
Still all efforts in vain.

Douse who will
This burning bribery?

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
