One of my colleagues is trying to develop mind reading software

One of my colleagues is trying to develop mind reading software
He is fully devoted to it; he says when develop; will be a funfair
He being a genius; doing best to come out with it; can't compare
It is next to impossible; but he is after it to develop; it being rare!

A lot of people following up his work to see it will take us where
When started his project; thought how someone; think to do dare
And when he went further; I said to myself; it is logically unfair
If he is trying to develop; let him try though harmful such software

But what to do; human being got a freewill; though it is unfair
Let him use thinking capability to come out with a product rare!
Many destructive products like cigarettes; and drugs are there
Think of arms; and ammunition with anything; you can't compare

But when think with complete devotion; as to why such thing is there
One way it is beauty of intellect that what you plan; you reach there!
Sorry to say why can't we devote our energy for good cause; to care
A majority of us do things for good cause; impact on us can't compare

Despite all those odds; converted this barren land into a paradise to share
Look at real estate; everywhere see thousands of high rise buildings there
In the evening when it gets illuminated; it looks that actually we are there
Therefore; whosoever is developing software; let him do society to share
