On The Uses Of Adversity

"Nam nihil est, quod non mortalibus afferat usum."

--PETRONIUS


Nothing there is that mortal man may utterly despise;
What in our wealth we treasured, in our poverty we prize.

The gold upon a sinking ship has often wrecked the boat,
While on a simple oar a shipwrecked man may keep afloat.

The burglar seeks the plutocrat, attracted by his dress--
The poor man finds his poverty the true preparedness.

End Poverty

End poverty
In the world now
Please
Come and work
Together to end poverty
In the world
So many people in the world are starving

Real Poverty

Real Poverty
We get older
we learn more
we had enough of masked phases
true men are few
How ugly is poverty!
of humanity!
Am I right?
 
Abdullah alHemaidy

  120.     

The Wind Palace Of Jaipur

The soft pink of the wind palace
Does not jell with her poverty’s
Blazing red tie-and-dye saree
Too kitschy for our proud art,
Too sentimental for our souls.
Let us have bright red bangles
They contrast better with the pink-
There is still poverty left in them.
 
Jagannath rao Adukuri
