Hollowness Of Man

Jealousy has grown like fruitless trees
It has spread like width of seven seas
It can’t be justified with very many pleas
Life is condensed cocoon of humming bees

Humans are no more, but hollowness remains
Losses have crossed the so called worldly gains
Souls have abolished, it is circus of brains
What is in credit but collection of disdains?

Virtue is no more and vice with vagabonds
Remains as a symbol with all existing brands
