Unseen Sobbings - Poem by LISY KURIAKOSE

Looking so tired,
Merging the whole world's pity,
Poor cattle are hobbling aimless,
Being ignorant about the travel to the silent world.

No kingdom, no protection,
Dumb and unaware about their in vain birth,
No vigour, but pain shadowed in the eyes,
Seeking kindness?
Do we care? Of course not:
Why? They are for austerity.

Among them who is slightly healthy,
Diverted from the line for a greenish tip,
Suddenly, a long stick is whirled in the air,
Ha! A loud flash on the back.

Tear drops, reflect a river of sorrows,
Waging tails, fighting against whistling flies,
Dragging the hooves, a step forward,
Where? to escape from butcher's knife.

No, absolutely not, but to become a prey,
So painful, and moments of agony pass,
Repeat this process from auld lang syne,
To be appeared in the form of delicious dishes.

We enjoy in the calm and musical delight,
Demand more for stomach full,
No gratitude, no pricking conscious,
Hoity-toity prances and over rules,
Dumb cries vanish behind the curtains.

    about 'INEQUALITY', as described in Oxfam Report:

    the 'explosion' in the wealth of the super-rich has come at the expense of the majority and particularly the poorest people.
    A key trend is the falling share of national income going to workers in almost all developed and most developing countries - - and the majority of low paid workers around the world are women.
    Tax havens, used by the rich and multinational companies, are fuelling economic inequality and preventing hundreds of millions of people lifting themselves out of poverty.
    In such a context, hundreds of millions of people go hungry while resources that could be used to help them are sucked up by those at the top of the wealth-piramid.

    Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director of Oxfam International, said: “Do we really want to live in a world where the one percent own more than the rest of us combined? The scale of global inequality is quite simply staggering and despite the issues shooting up the global agenda, the gap between the richest and the rest is widening fast.

    “In the past 12 months we have seen world leaders from President Obama to Christine Lagarde talk more about tackling extreme inequality but we are still waiting for many of them to walk the walk. It is time our leaders took on the powerful vested interests that stand in the way of a fairer and more prosperous world.

    “Business as usual for the elite isn’t a cost free option – failure to tackle inequality will set the fight against poverty back decades. The poor are hurt twice by rising inequality – they get a smaller share of the economic pie and because extreme inequality hurts growth, there is less pie to be shared around.”
