The Status Symbol

Mapping the trend in the recent years
I trace to places untrodden
by society so far.

Frequenting pubs, getting drunk,
almost every evening commands
a respect on today’s society.

Driving through the city
in luxurious cars raises
the level of living .

Flying to places and countries
for a cause or for socializing
is regarded high.

Dining out, holding parties
for birthdays, for anniversaries,
elevates the ranking.

Dressing with ostentation in mind
in expensive outfits lends
an enviable position.

Adorning with finest jewelry
sporting a feigned smile
bestows pride.

So masquerade the “nouveau riche”
with painted faces and artificial

Morality, discipline modesty
govern a distinction
which most ignore.
