A Wider View

A boy was treading on a day very fine,

The luminous Sun made everything shine

When suddenly he saw an elongated line

In front of a shop that sold wine.

He thought in his deepest thought

While wine and liquor are bought

By these men who have money a lot,

Why his parents and he himself fought

To get a square meal daily

And fill their empty bellies.

His mind cluttered with thoughts alike,

While the landlord's son has a costly bike,

Why he had to walk kilometers and miles

Collecting garbage piles.

He shouted with his voice high

Without at all being shy:

Is this equality which is mentioned

In the world's longest constitution?

Are poor always supposed to

Fight as they presently do?

Don't we breathe just as you?

Doesn't our blood have a similar hue?

If you think you will continue this rule

You are to be the greatest fool.

Your home has A.C

But our heart has will

You can have money

But we have zeal.

So, how much be your earning,

This is an open warning:

'Even the smallest match with the slightest fire

Can burn an empire'
