Stands in the thorough fare,
Pointing to the directions ,
With meticulous care.
The passers move about ,
Not paying heed without doubt,
Taking on their own float,
Amidst the deafening shout.
The board is in a sullen solitude,
Performing its duty in an aptitude,
Withstanding the commotion with fortitude,
Least expecting a fruitful gratitude.
Time tested rules get lost,
While materialistic pursuit overtakes thought,
Everything flares up in a shot,
As none assume the principled slot.
Undue irreverence to doctrines
Unnatural turn of tailspin,
Unwanted alliance to illegitimate wins.
Cause a senseless down spins.
Sign board is a pointer,
A follow-up is a rejoinder,
Principles provide a frontier,
A solemn adherence grants a protector..
