Poverty And Illiteracy - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Drive out poverty
And illiteracy
From the country
Or the country
Would drive you out.

Poverty and illiteracy
Are men-made. Remember,
In today's democracy
Men are powerful.

Give respect to men,
Men are there
To keep you in power.
You are powerful
Only for people.
