Conflict of Interests



When you strive for the best
There's bound to arise conflict of interest
It arises when there is benefit pecuniary
To upheld your position
It sometimes become necessary
To handle carefully any relation
Conflict may arise at personal level
When you desire upheaval
To grow and sustain
Level high, you want to maintain
It is not restricted to you only
It involves your family
In the age of increasing consumerism
People are prone to nepotism
How can you remain silent
When you are to perform
Beyond your expertise
Breaking code of conduct and norm
You are asked by your client
Your moral values speak volume
Use the power of dissent
Or silently you do consent
Man can perform multiple function
Then arises conflict of profession
In the age of material possession
And the worldly pleasure
Man is in look out for greener pasture
This lands him in trouble
Conflict of interest like bubble
Erupts on the surface of ethics
Fermented by the competitors and critics
Strive to be professional the best
Manage the conflicts of interest
