Poverty

Poverty

The poor
The homeless
The mother
The father
The son
The daughter
One by one
Died of hunger

The aunt
The uncle
The niece
The cousin
Followed them later

Oh! Poverty
Killing all the makers of history
Will you and I live to see
Poverty being history?

A brilliant ending to a simple poem. Beautifully done, Konjit! ! Brian
WOW, I dunno what to say, except that, that was a beautiful poem. Poverty affects all of us in some way. That was a great write, Never quit writing, Smiles N Hugs Willow: -)
I've been reading through quite a lot of your poetry, Konjit, and I find it fresh and young but at the same time much of it is deep and holds a message. I will continue to read it. I like this one for its simpliciity and for the last two lines, which finish it off brilliantly. Love, Fran xx
