Bread And Butter - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

Eradication of poverty is only possible
If production rate of the poor is reduced
But Red, Green, Saffron... any political party
never goes to the poor and convinces for it.
They all work for their own parties and men
Their policy is... 'Cut the roots of the plant
And sprinkle water on it to show the people'.
Because no one wants to eradicate poverty.
Poor is the source of their bread and butter
Poverty is the source of their existence
If the growth of the poor stops or reduce
Who will hold the flag, march on the street?
How money will go to bank if no welfare scheme?

(Wingless Birds)

    Very realistic write sarcastically expounded reiterating the social ills existing and exploitation of the same for their own vested interest and bread and butter, by politicians of all hues..
