A Common Tragedy - Poem by Asif Andalib

When a fire breaks out
In a garments factory
Some workers escape
Others are trampled to death
Now a common tragedy

    Yes, it is very tragic and it happens again and again many places in our world. May the security of the laborers be seriously looked at by the companies. Thanks for raising this issue. (Report) Reply
