The Untouchables!


We call ourselves; the 21st centurions,
Civilized and many more…
In reality, our thoughts
Still sticked to uncivilized era.
The so called civilians,
Carrying the ideas of untouchability;
Are the pillars of the society?
Pathetic! Would be the scenario.
Two decades of education,
Fails to eradicate the thoughts of untouchability…
What would come; in rescue of cleansing the minds of real untouchables,
Will ever social justice be possible?

    One with such a thought is one who fails to walk with time. We live in an age, civilised for that matter, where the thought of a caste system is not entertained, and is inappropriate for any mind to be acquainted with it. Among my ethnic group, the Igbo, there are some communities which still practice a caste system known as Osu today. An interesting writing. (Report) Reply

    Great one
    You have taken a great subject to narrate a poem
    You are correct, still there is, but few.
    Good work
