Poverty

In this civilized world

How easy it has become

To move on…

 

Walking over violated women

A hand to the rapists,

Stampeding the poor

Affording the rich,

Running over innocence

Assisting the culprits.

 

In our civilized world

How easy it has become

To move on…

 

Talking of peace

Marketing violence,

Discussing acceptance

Nursing intolerance,

Eloquent strategies for the poor

But poverty begs from door to door.
