    dotsRich, middle class and the poordots
    -------------------------------------------


    Rich getting richer, poor remain poor,
    Poverty like HIV, it has no bloody cure.
    Who's the one responsible? Who's the one to blame?
    Corruption puts us to shame, spreading like giant flames.

    Rich folks got money that they refuse to part with,
    They remember that they had nothing to start with.
    Gone through the hard life and the struggle,
    Now they dont care about other's troubles.

    That does make them callous & insensitive,
    Making more wealth is their only objective.
    In this era, people with no respect & gratitude,
    How can you blame them for this attitude?

    Milions starving and living in slums,
    Thousands others that are deaf & dumb.
    Billions stuck in the vicious cycle of poverty,
    All rich folks do is stand & watch quietly.

    Rich evade tax and the middle class is cheated,
    Finding loopholes in the system, law is defeated.
    Rich do what the cruel world taught them to do,
    Not knowing what to do, the poor have no clue.

    In aluminium cups, poor drinking stale rice gruel,
    Rich eating in goldplates, all seems so cruel.
    Gangsters selling drugs & get money from extortion,
    While poor bear bastard kids, no money for abortion.

    Rich getting richer, poor remain poor,
    Poverty like HIV, it has no bloody cure.
    Who's the one responsible? Who's the one to blame?
    Corruption puts us to shame, spreading like giant flames.

    Poor remain poor and they accept their fate,
    Govt ignoring them, so they have no faith.
    Govt & rich work like brothers from one mother,
    Accumulating wealth, care about none other.

    Poor in a deplorable state,their lives a living hell,
    Burying their kid's dead bodies, digging with a shovel.
    No time for mourning and no money for a funeral,
    Back to hard work & labour cuz problems are several.

    People make poor feel like they have no right to breed,
    Like their condition is all due to their fricking misdeeds.
    Looking for oppurtunities poor move to huge cities,
    Not anticipating the coldness and the harsh reality.

    No education makes poor breed like salmonella,
    Dozen kids but struggle for one meal & shelter.
    Hungry, naked kids getting drenched in rainy weather,
    Rich folks sitting cozy, with foodgrains in the cellar.

    Manual labour, no time to relax & take a deep breath,
    Resigned to the almighty, they wait for their deaths.
    Rich and poor dont mix like black africans and caucasians,
    Inequal wealth distribution is a problem in every nation.

    Rich getting richer, poor remain poor,
    Poverty like HIV, it has no bloody cure.
    Who's the one responsible? Who's the one to blame?
    Corruption puts us to shame, spreading like giant flames.
