The Hotel Boy

Little did his mother think
when she babe her new baby
her dearest baby will be
one day a Hotel boy

The little boy below the teen
getting slang languages
some times slap too
his power of endurance is extreme

Still washing cup plates
cleaning victous of customers
the hands which are to hold
chalk, paper, pencil, bat and ball
are getting rampant.

In lieu he gets
two times meal and
a tatter to wear

Thanks to the civilized Human
made him to do so

But I am helpless
I have neither money
nor time to spare
for his bright future

The Government is also helpless
I do not know why they are so

The entire Human society is
too helpless, because no time
to look into the matter, as busy
for making a new world
preparing to fight against Mankind

But no matter to grieve on the matter
God is always with Him.

    In my humble opinion poetry is composed in diction of feelings rather than any yard stick of accuracy...this i must say is an eye-opener...this poem has a very loud voice for the high-ups... your hotel boy reminds me of Blake's Chimney sweeper! ! !
