The Curse Of Poverty - Poem by ramesh rai


Poverty is a curse for human society
Poverty prevails there where the injustice is
Poverty exclaims there where the illiteracy is
Poverty is purely man made
So it has to be eradicated from its root
The society afflicted with poverty
Is reprehension of entire human society
Corruption is the source of poverty
Only a fearless society can be said
Free from all poverty
Where the people are dumb and discounted
Poverty exists there
Poverty shows, how many immature person
Rule the country
Poverty is the reason for all philosophical end.

    Since the people in the country gain the knowledge,
    There may be people to cheat,
    Therefore the poverty could not be avoided.

    it is so true, but it will continue as it has since the beginning of man, because there is
    no one to lead the crusade

    The poet's emphatic statement is unequivocal about the cause of poverty especially in the third world countries. His resolve to root out poverty is commendable but it is not going to be easy.

    Poverty is the rural way of life. Poor living is highly sustainable and environment friendly. It is the brain drain into the cities of ambitious railway officials and other burgeoning middle classes that inspires the ignorant farmers to try and fashion a life for them in the cities. As a result, when they fail, they end up living below the cities' many over bridges. (Report) Reply

    A great write about the causes of poverty that afflict society.It is very true that injustice, illiteracy, corruption, timidity are some of the big reasons why a section of population is poor.Poverty is a shame on humanity.The ruling class has a vital role in eradication of poverty.But we all should do our little bits in stamping out poverty.By being guided by our conscience to be just and impartial, by being kind and helpful towards the poor, spreading education among the poor and being bold in upholding justice we can contribute for a poverty free society.
