U Win Kyi
A Hungry Boy And Foolish Politician
A begging hungry boy
sobbing in a cry
while watching the firework display
as the New year was hailed.
Firework display cost money by millions,
giving some people just a fleeting fun.
But it wastefully burned
a lot of public fund.
The show was very spectacular
but it couldn't relieve his hunger.
It was nothing but waste of money.
He was not happy
because his tummy
so empty and hungry.
Many New Year promises the politicians make
but his hunger they can't alleviate.
If they have a wise brain
the world won't be the same.
If they do not make money waste
the boy will not be hungry with a thin waist.
