The Most Dangerous Beast! - Poem by Khadim Hussain

Prowling like a tiger,
Squeezes like the anaconda,
But thinks like a man.

The harsher, the more successful it is.
Its natural habitants are the slums
Of Calcutta, Bombay,
Slums of many third world countries.

Many countries developed nations
Think they have eradicated this beast
But it prowls again
Once condition for its natural habitant
Occurs, even temporarily.
