Raja And Rani (King And Queen) - Poem by Vera Sidhwa

Raja and Rani
(King and Queen)

Raja and rani,
You both need to listen,
To your general populace
But you don't listen.

You live in palaces great
Where the chandeliers and furniture glisten.
You eat food galore and tasty
But you're not aware of what's outside your palace.

You don't care even if you know.
The general palace dwellers don't see
What the populace can be.
It is poor beyond poverty.

Rajas and ranis of the world.
The world is in revolution against you.
They don't want to listen to you.
But you hold the power and the cash.

So you don't have to listen to them.

    Very well said... Those who are power are almost never open to listen to the voices of the mass... Thank you for sharing.. A very, very good and thought provoking poem...
