Hawker


Hawker came
Said nothing
As we are here
For life imprisonment
Our fault is
We are human.

We are human
With so many
Hurdles
Our problem is
We are unable to
Crossed.

Crossing the bar
Is not a joke
Said the hawker
At last and
Left us.

Life is really
Costlier
No help line is
Also there
What are there
Just blank fire.

    I think you are talking about the escalating commodity prices, it happens everywhere in the world and the poor people are the most affected. The speculation is done on every little thing on earth and it is purposefully sponsored by the bankers with the aid of stock market pundits. It happened in USA, it happened in Japan, It happened in South East Asia and it will happen in most of the inflated stock markets of the world. The stock value and its NTA are irrelevant to one another, so it has to be corrected (Report) Reply

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
