Unequal terms in life you say..
A topic that generates anger always..
how many examples do I demonstrate..
you will be aghast hearing our state..
Inequality in genders we have..
a boy from girl, a man from woman..
former the better, latter the lesser..
Consistently in education and profession..
Lack of respect for our body and minds..
is the reason we hear rapes and dowry “suicides”..
is the reason we juggle with career and family..
choosing the latter of both at some point of time..
Inequality in resource allocation we have..
rich from poor, does the gap fill ever..
basic needs remain unmet somewhere..
while blatant waste is the fashion elsewhere..
blissfully unaware of people dying..
for something extra thrown in garbage bins..
Inequality in human and every other species we have..
be it flora or fauna, they are lesser than us..
they can be killed and driven to extinction..
used mercilessly for our own, yes that’s the assumption..
driving our home, mother Earth into imbalance..
bureaucracy and impotent fools in inaction..
just conferences and talks, no decisions..
Inequality at its best we have here..
this is our dark side, don’t ignore..
treat each equal, be kind to others..
if you can’t be, at least don’t be cruel..
