The Rich, The Poor - Poem by Kolawole Ajao

Even in the rich man's house
Poor man's food is being eaten
You had better eat rich man's food
In the poor man's house
Than eat poor man's food
In the rich man's house
Our world is mixed
Truly inseperable.

    Strong one there... i like the paradox and the pun.. and it is very witty.. this is food for thought. It is indeed a great poem. This poem tells me that there is some point of connection between the have not and the haves.

    Pray, tell.. what rich and poor man's food is? (Report) Reply
