The deadliest terror

Thousands of books
Written on
Growth and development,
Despite Nobel Laureates
Renowned economists
Scratching dead, re-read heads,
Notwithstanding
Millions of seminars
Conferences arranged
Good and kind words exchanged
Year after year
Rich are becoming rich
Poor poorer.

The deadliest terror
The world has ever known
Is disparity amongst
The rich and the poor.

The rich cannot survive
Without the poor
By design poverty is alive
So rich can gain more and more.

It’s a global shame it’s a pity
Since time the endemic terror
So openly dirty and vulgar
Is spread as a red carpet so dear
So characteristically pithy.
