We always hear this "Help the poor, Help the needy",
But not many of us do, cuz most humans are greedy.
All that greed and selfishness is absolutely justified,
Just food, shelter & clothing, life isn't that simplified.
After basic necessities a man looks for comfort,
Earning more wealth, but all they do is conserve.
Comfortable life, now the man aspires for luxuries,
Cars, mansions, designer clothing & shiny jewellery.
Peep deep in the human mind, we know what's inside,
Human wants and desires are never to be satisfied.
Never ending quest for more comfort and wealth,
Its human nature,a man thinks of no one but himself.
After one's own self, one thinks about his parents,
Then its the spouse, then kids, the long list never ends.
Politicians & diplomats work together like a joint venture,
Middle class not bothered, their attitude is self-centred.
World teaches everyone to be selfish and insensitive,
One man can't change it, the effort has to be collective.
Some things can be changed but not the bloody mentality,
Everyone knows it but they all they do is ignore the reality.
People have their view point and this is how they explain,
They say poor people do nothing, all they do is complain.
All poor people do is beg for help with no shame,
We toiled hard all day and they should do the same.
Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion,
People for the benefit of mankind is one in a million.
Some angels in disguise do help to reduce poverty,
They earn some and give away some to charity.
But one should think and also be warned,
Tool of Charity too has its own pros and cons.
Charitable folks and govt makes the poor complacent,
Wastrels playing music and begging on the pavements.
Knowing govt would help them so they dont move a muscle,
No solution to this bloody problem, its like a one huge circle.
So charity can be a blessing, so can it be a curse,
Things could get better, or turn from bad to worse.
