Poems on "Money"

Poverty

a poem by Sudipto Bhattacharya

I am a man
A very poor man

My body starves for food
My mind starves for education
My soul starves for salvation

What if the politicians promise pay and morsel to man and then fail to deliver?
What if there are no universities unifying unkind man?
What if god incarnates himself here for eighty-four lakh times
For liberating man and then fails miserably?

My poor body, my poor mind and my poor soul will not stop to say that

I am a man
A very poor man.
