POVERTY & GHOSTS (27th Jan 2011)

The ghosts arrive

Snatching away
Even their little joy
Poverty has bestowed
To be just alive!

Good food is a rare sight
Surrounded by fully armed men
Drinking water is precious
Dead bodies
Oh, one can find them everywhere!

Thirst, hunger, sickness
No work, grains or even rain
The ghosts don't even hesitate
Exploiting poverty for dollars
To splurge on their ivory towers!
