Poverty—A Curse

When I see a small child
Washing dirty crockery,
I wonder aloud is this
All because of poverty?

When I hear a news
About a robbery
I think had he done
All because of poverty?

When I see a man
Waiting in a long bank line
For only rupees forty
All because of poverty?

In this world
People cannot live
With liberty
All because of poverty?
