Poverty uncomplicated

Cities overpopulated

Women and children subjugated

Starving people procreated

Hunger never satiated

New diseases germinated

Intangible solutions  postulated

Resolutions often debated

Responsibilities delegated

One or two are motivated

Corruption theft permeated

Apathy is instigated

Hope for change lost dissipated

Pain never alleviated

Souls and spirits confiscated

Few are spared relocated

Dissolute distribution of wealth unmitigated
