                                              Self-seeking! Self-seeking! Self-seeking!
                                              I abhor such self-opinionated thing.
                                              ‘Self’-being a very aberrating jargon;
                                              Has the potential to astound anyone;
                                              Very hardly and the rarest of rare are able to grasp it,
                                              It is a codification for a many to be hit.


                                              Self-seeking! Self-seeking! Self-seeking!
                                              How horrendous it is for anyone’s shrieking.
                                              Many a time leads it simpletons to suicide;
                                              Coz they feel psychically defeated, neglected and
                                              belied.
                                              The self-seeking tend to self-centredness;
                                              And it fills them to the brim with haughtiness.

                                               Self-seeking! Self-seeking! Self-seeking!
