The Naked Child

Rating: 5.0

The war stopped, the great one
About seventy years ago
All said and done
There is now peace – peace aglow

UN, NASA, WHO and democracy
Thrived along as never before
Wall Street, NASDAQ and their intricacy
Made the richest history implore
Health and education improved

Everywhere as behooved

A poem that pulls us up short.'If you do it to one of my least brethern you do it to me'.We cannot say that we love our fellow man if do not start with loving and caring for all our children no matter what their creed or colour. We are all guilty.10.

We are living in a deceptive world. On the one side UN charter speaks of no war but unity. On the other side, wars, poverty, starvation, malnutrition, hoarding essential things etc still exist and swallowing many lives day by day. Every today's child is a citizen of tomorrow-they all say, but in action, child labor is taking away their bright future and they die out of starvation and malnutrition. A well thougtful poem.
