Farida Gulani

the crowned hero Poem by Farida Gulani

overty! What a cruel name they named you
They chant your name
You are wicked
You killed my only brother
You made us sleep not, my roof is leaking
My clothes are tattered and worn out
I cannot eat three times
I'm lean and skinny
I cannot send my kids to school

Poverty oh poverty

You are great
You are just known in some places
You are indeed great
You stopped them from getting fat or dieting
You made them good planners
You made them meteorologist without schooling
You made them conscious of supreme One
You singlehandedly reduced the world's population
You made them communal
You are the champion
