I cringe at the sight

Of abject misery that

Unfold before me

Poverty a reason of

Unjust society

Where ignorance prevails

And illiteracy dominates

The root cause of corruption

And a manmade phenomenon

  1. This is true. Recently there have been people who are poor and desperate paying a high price. I am thinking of the Grenfell Tower fire and the tanker explosion in Pakistan. Poor people . Social injustice. You have expressed it well.
