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.

    The wisest Lord Dear Jesus hath said
    The meek shall inherit the earth
    as population increases as all know it
    nothing new
    all copulate and palpitate
    so population will only migrate
    from poorer lands to richer ones
    till all are made equally meek

    then as the world’s population
    is three times present
    maybe four too
    won't we all be meek too
    Thank Jesus for warning you
    but from sex can you ever be through
    so let population explode all of us
    no need for anyone to fuss
    Blame not the politicians too
    they also so quietly do
    add on without any clue
    would you to so do (Report) Reply

    Wow, Ramesh! Your poem simplifies the essence of poverty and where it emanates from. It is true that a handful of people cause the poverty of the world, because of their greed and selfishness. Poverty is the shame of mankind, it proves how little we care for one another in this world. It does need to be eradicated from it's roots. I agree it is totally man-made and immature people are governing our world, with no thoughts of ever freeing society from it. We need a world-wide effort, put forth honestly to end poverty. Thank you for sharing your views with us, very profound. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Poverty is something comparative. It differs from society to society. In every society there is an average standard of living and one whose standard is below the average level is called a poor. We should say it as the basic needs of a human being must be provided to him. As far as luxuries are concerned it is up to your efforts. Your poem is a reflection of your feelings and love for the humanity, and I salute you for it. (Report) Reply
