The Curse Of Poverty

Poverty
Poverty is a curse for human society
Poverty prevails there where the injustice is
Poverty exclaims there where the illiteracy is
Poverty is purely man made
So it has to be eradicated from its root
The society afflicted with poverty
Is reprehension of entire human society
Corruption is the source of poverty
Only a fearless society can be said
Free from all poverty
Where the people are dumb and discounted
Poverty exists there
Poverty shows, how many immature person
Rule the country
Poverty is the reason for all philosophical end.

i like the poem...it helps me know more on what is poverty
I love this poem! Great theme, truth spoken, it makes us think! Poverty is purely man made yes indeed. SadIy, guess as long as we will have richness we may also have poverty. Maybe one day both words will be replaced by Enough for every living being on earth. And I mean not only humans... Could we imagine the humans saying I have enough while thinking of other livings and nature's needs?
