Curse Of Poverty Poem by mamutty CHOLA

Curse Of Poverty

Rating: 5.0


The biggest enemy of humanity has been the poverty

In all stages of human civilization rulers have been exploiting the poor

By selling them dreams since time immemorable.

No country in the world is immune to poverty and exploitation

The poverty as curse has been ruling the world as unfettered and invincible

Evil on earth.

Many isms like communism, socialism and capitalism came to power

To remove /eradicate poverty but all have turned into predators instead of

Savior of humanity.

As long as greed reigns, it is impossible to conquer poverty and shall

Remain invincible. All revolutions in the name of poverty were fraught;

The poverty was used by rulers as lever to perpetuate themselves in power

Unless people themselves become master of their destiny, humanity

Shall always remain subservient to the forces of vested interests irrespective of

Ideology, types of governance under all; be it communism, socialism

Socialistic republic or capitalist forms of governments. The genesis of the problem

Lies in mala fide intentions of the rulers.

The day rulers use their authority as responsibility, a new era of hope will dawn

Till then, poverty shall remain the biggest enemy of humanity on earth.

You are right. Poverty has been the curse created by the rulers all over the world. Once they get to power they amass wealth for themselves ignoring the plight of the poor and hungry. Very nice. Liked it.10+++
