’tis A Sad, Mad World! - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

A famished, ill-clad beggar stands
Amidst some barking dogs!
All searching through the garbage-dump
For left-over food, fast;
Each taking turns at emptying,
The things inedible;
Their hunger-pangs can drive them mad;
Will Dame Luck smile on them?

His eyes keep straining just for food,
On plantain-leaves by luck;
The scorching sun can’t bother him,
Nor can the stench within;
His pangs of hunger goads him on
To lick the residue;
His face keeps smiling when he sees,
A morsel of cooked grain!

The dogs are happy biting bones,
Though meat, they never meet;
He’s back to work upon the pile
And sorts the rocks from leaves;
There’s silence excepting the noise
Of scrambling for food found;
The garbage-dump’s a blessed spot,
Where man and beast share food!

    ‘…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
