The Misleading Appearances

The Misleading Appearances

1 min 160 1 min 160

Tring! Tring! Rings the cell phone!

Thank God! A much-appreciated invention!

Reducing distances between lands and people!

Alas! The unputdownable addiction surreptitiously smirks!


Vehicles, too, boast of their worth in curbing time

However, good health, says, ‘Goodbye!’

A shabby model millionaire or a millionaire model

The misleading appearances can’t disclose all!


Friends can turn foes in no time

Yet the man chooses filters to view the world

The thorns he decides to trim turn into nightmares

Stealing his peace and gifting him the baggage of remorse!


Man-made Frankenstein plays the pipe

Lo! The foolish men follow him like the hypnotized!

Perfidious foul turns fair and lackluster fair becomes foul!

O! Poor World! Put down your faulty filters!
