Everyman has a right to live.
I uprooted the grass growing
Along with the paddy I grew.
Hasn't the grass right to live?

    yes, every man has the right to live. when Hitler had done the weeding during holocaust, he differentiated the human as paddy and weeds and his action was wrong and punished. Economically we have to weed to get huge produce. thought provoking poem.. (Report)Reply
