Poverty

 
 
 
Nowhere to go, she sat by the sidewalk looking at the skies
Dressed in fading pink, pensive with pale and sunken eyes
Her million emotions this season’s colours could not hide
Though a bunch of Winnie- the- Poohs smiled by her side
Drawn by those buoyant yellow and red, brilliant ‘n bright,
Like a kid in the candy store I thought quote as she might
And chose to ask “Hello dear lady, so they’re how much?"
"Enough to feed my two little ones, their hunger is such!"
Said she while I lost in a bargain, more mean than clever
Realizing that people of my kind will stay poorer forever!

Sad it is. A poem of few albeit hard hitting lines.
