The Curse Of Poverty - Poem by ramesh rai

Poverty is a curse for human society
Poverty prevails there where the injustice is
Poverty exclaims there where the illiteracy is
Poverty is purely man made
So it has to be eradicated from its root
The society afflicted with poverty
Is reprehension of entire human society
Corruption is the source of poverty
Only a fearless society can be said
Free from all poverty
Where the people are dumb and discounted
Poverty exists there
Poverty shows, how many immature person
Rule the country
Poverty is the reason for all philosophical end.

    Meh. Cliches and platitudes about a serious, enduring existential problem among humans. This poem does little more than state the obvious without deeper insights into the problem. Nothing risky, nothing thought provoking, nothing new to see here. Move along.

    And, yes, I'm fully aware that I'm likely to get a bunch of thumbs down on my post for not recognizing the seriousness of poverty. Who doesn't recognize the seriousness of poverty? The corrupt? Bah, that's why they're corrupt, to insure they don't fall into that miserable condition. The problem is the poem itself and it's lack of depth that I'm addressing, not the serious topic of the poem (poverty) which deserves a much more rich and nuanced approach than this poem is capable of.

    Poverty will always
    be there, too many pigs at trough.
    Corruption rules the land.

  • Vaidyanathan Ram Iyer (4/17/2016 11:20:00 AM)

    Since the people in the country gain the knowledge,
    There may be people to cheat,
    Therefore the poverty could not be avoided.

    it is so true, but it will continue as it has since the beginning of man, because there is
    no one to lead the crusade

    The poet's emphatic statement is unequivocal about the cause of poverty especially in the third world countries. His resolve to root out poverty is commendable but it is not going to be easy.

    Well said, but it's easier said than done!
    Even so, I surely wish we could eradicate it!
