Laziness Kills!



Can we ever be independent?
If you were in governance,
Would you have attained the so-called development?
Sha! I consider common self dependence.

Chosen to harvest what others should reap,
Browsing on a remaining sip,
Sycophants that often peep,
Natural? No! yet in the body deep.

Anyway, I remembered individuality,
It’s normal, considering the society,
Nature preach for sickness of dignity,
Fir this, and all, I still blame humanity.

Can any give the idea a lie?
Or disqualify my ‘because’ to his ‘why’?
Hmm! Then, let not call it shy,
Is as good as I die!
