Tale of All Cities


# Tale of Two Cities

They talk of ‘Tale of Two Cities ‘,

I talk of all the cities of the world,

In each  lies a  huge chasm of disparity,

Between the haves and the have nots,

Where humanity is dead , cruelty thrives ,

Where the oppressed struggle to breathe,

The air is polluted by smoke and dust,

Where goodness dies and values rust,

Mankind struggles to survive in the slums,

Though nobodies and no ones they live on,

Without an identity and without a nation,

Though they were born on this earth,

Becoming the denizens of no man’s land ,

Hungry ,humiliated ,helpless they roam,

Tortured at their fortunate brethren’s ’ hands.


What do you think?
