Some Just Gets Ordained

Quarrelling just for positions,fame and fortune
Some just live a life without any shame at all
Just swimming about in the races in religions
 They Just move ahead as if drunk with casters
Some just become like crazy dancing monkeys
That dance in open in the kitchen before wives
Where others turn to become just like feet lickers
Acting as buffoons and clowns in the circus of life.

Some just get ordained to be priests to do the rituals
To just make a living without piety from their pay
Some never care to feed their parents and children
Never caring to see the real devotion of their wives
They willfully forget to see the affection of parents
Not even having time to remember even in dreams
Forgetting the advice given by others by affections
Many just spurts out to them like a virulent enemy

When some see the most venerable personalities
They have only words of scorn to shower on them
Some just believe only what some few people say
As if others can never be right in their views always
Some just make self made pyres to win in own life
Selling all gold and diamonds that they have earned
Some Sell religions as if it was their Stock-in Trade
To make cheap money without much capital in stake.

Some others just make death traps for others to fall
To make their games easier terminating the other
Some having lost cleanliness like a prodigal son
Withers away not able to find the true meaning of life
Though many see the true meaning of one's life
Their minds just set them aside never to be satisfied
When some receive ten they are greedy to have more
When offered a hundred then need another thousand

The need for more and more never ends in their minds
Knowing well that none takes except the dress worn
When placed into the coffin or on the pyre when dead
Many do hunt too hard to catch all they can and in life
 And just also relinquish all their good qualities in life
Learning nothing that had to be learned from books
Some just boast like scholars and pose like prophets
Pretend to have divine powers but are just null sets
