Gospel - Poem by Pietro Grossi

Coming from far away,
Cotton fields is one shore,
But further is the root,
In Africa is the core.

From the people who suffers
Comes out the best of feelings,
And here, with Jesus word,
They give to pain a meaning.

African Diaspora, Spirituals,
Sources where borned and grown,
Then met Blues, Celtic, Country,
Every place has its own.

Gesturing, Chanting, Dancing,
The Groups speak to the Lord,
The mouth takes out and shows,
What's dictated from the soul.

They sing what Jesus said..
..To People..and to Apostoles,
And it comes out a music..
..Beautiful..Magical..: GOSPEL! !

    abut Oxfam report /Inequality:
    As Oxfam says, the 'explosion' in the wealth of the super-rich has come at the expense of the majority and particularly the poorest people. A key trend is the falling share of national income going to workers in almost all developed and most developing countries. And the majority of low paid workers around the world are women. Tax havens, used by the rich and multinational companies, are fuelling economic inequality and preventing hundreds of millions of people lifting themselves out of poverty. In such a context, hundreds of millions of people go hungry while resources that could be used to help them are sucked up by those at the top of the wealth-piramid.

    To reverse all above:
    - workers have to be paid a living wage;
    - the gap with executive rewards to be narrowed;
    - end to the gender pay gap;
    - compensation for unpaid care;
    - promotion of equal land and inheritance rights for women (in many parts of the world women have no rights!) :
    - governments have to take action on lobbying;
    - reducing the price of medicines;
    - taxing wealth rather than consumption;
    - using progressive public spending to tackle inequality.
