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.

    I love this poem! Great theme, truth spoken, it makes us think!
    Poverty is purely man made yes indeed. SadIy, guess as long as we will have richness we may also have poverty. Maybe one day both words will be replaced by Enough for every living being on earth. And I mean not only humans... Could we imagine the humans saying I have enough while thinking of other livings and nature's needs?

    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.

    Thats so true. There should be a deeper thought to this poem as it only states the obvious
