Buttering And Oiling


For bright prosperous future,
They say oiling is required.
They inform buttering is must;
If in job promotion is desired.

Butter increases cholesterol.
It is not at all good for health.
I say no to such promotions.
Poverty better than such wealth.

I cannot kill my conscience;
To make tommorow brighter.
For oiling I've a jar of kerosene;
And I always carry a lighter.

    Greasing the palm has become unfortunately the order of the day! In a society where values are flown in the wind, those who refuse to do so will be overtaken by those with glib tongues! ! A highly moralistic write! (Report) Reply

    somewhere humourous and wholly moralistic poem......... as same as you believe i also believes.......if we want to be successfull then we should first become successfull inside our conscience for we have only one life and only one chance to become successfull then why become successfull by hurting your conscience.........be great inside and you will become outside thanks (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born
