Women Crusader - Poem by Dorina Neculce

I cover the heart of the rain
with one only tooth
the woman crusader is spreading
her gown is raining stars
above a mountain her footsteps
are crushing the neck
of the unspeakable man
is a shuffling of a thought
with round cheek is bowing
the smile is fading away
the woman becomes dark
is the day of Sabbath it's the day when
blood pours into goblets
pray, dance and drink
till the angels return
with an iron foot
the crusaders cut deep
the wax shoulder
the woman bleeds
tomorrow on we will not
give tribute
they mumble when hemming
savagely the woman's abdomen
with sand breast

    oh.. this is abut Oxfam report
    [ Inequality - Jan.18,2016 ]:

    As Oxfam says, 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.
