Short Poem ~ History Repeats

Rating: 5.0

Monuments raised on sweats of the labourers ~
to glorify the pride of the Kings.
It is not the story of exploitation of labourers ~
And history repeats time and again.


मज़दूरों के पसीने से बना स्मारक
राजा की गौरव शीलता का बखान है
न की मज़दूरों के शोषण की गाथा
यही होता आया है यही हो रहा है

Who cares about the source they all see the product. Kings wraps it up by putting their mark on the sweats of the poor labourers, Call is fate, destiny whatever you wish to but History repeats time and again, Well written poetry short and meaningful in today's context.

All the tall buildings are built by the sweat of poor labourers! While rich people stay in towers, the labourers can not manage to build a hut for themselves.Your four line poem say this truth in so many words!

Marvelous poem! Couldn't agree more! History repeats itself and the labourers keep sweating and the kings keep getting honours. Well articulated!

Even in Canada we have sweat shops. And the fashion moguls are laughing all the way to the bank. And how depressing is it to have them exploiting the poor by making a fortune through distressed jeans.
