    ‘…The garbage-dump’s a blessed spot, /Where man and beast share food! ‘

    A fatal stroke and lethal pouring of shame and scorn on the conscience of Civilization…

    Sincerely appreciate it and more such punches needed to awaken us from our ‘made-slothful’ attitude

    The last line speaks out a dogmatic truth...not only the beggar but also the rich people enjoy sharing their food with their pets while dining...a very catchy poem...thanks for sharing (Report)Reply
