Means And Ends - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

She sold her beauty
And bought popularity,
And, with popularity,
She got prosperity,
With which she attained
Supremacy to stay afloat.

He sold his greediness
And bought elevation,
And, with elevation,
He got governance,
With which he minted
Money to keep others down.
