Poverty is A Crime

Let us declare that poverty is a crime

It is a crime because it has been ‘causing much trouble to this civilized world

It is a crime because only crime breeds crime

It is a cime because it’s not a pretty sight to behold

It is a crime because it needs to feed on questionable things

It is a crime that needs to be eradicated

It takes a lot of people to wipe it off the face of the world

It is going to need plenty of woman and man to hold hands together to cease its spreading

It is not going to be an easy task, but it will be worth the price

We must not ignore poverty

Everyone who ignores poverty must be deemed criminal

‘Cause ignoring criminals means helping them to spread

So everyone who ignores poverty is criminal too

Think of it, people, what can we have if we eradicate it

A world where there’s no one sleepless at night hungry

A world where children enjoy their rights to learn and play

A world where no one is told to die by petty money

A world where no one is criminal

So let us hold in hands in peace

Gather our minds, hearts, strengths and riches

To spread the Blessing given by God to us

To eradicate this one crime that is the root of all crime
