Dead Man

When alive, the man was famous like a movie star,

He used to be stylish ever,

After fame he did run with much delight,

Like a boy runs after a flying kite!


Now he is dead, enwrapped in white cloth entirely,

His soul has escaped from his body,

As if a criminal tasted freedom!

As if it were free from boredom!


When alive, he had the whole world before,

Now he has only one room to enter- sepulcher!
