The Powerless

The helpless,
The weak,
The neglected,
Middle-class folks,
Struggling
To provide,
Happy and comfortable,
Life,
To their kids,
Rush in a frenzy,
To board local trains,
That will ferry them,
To their destinations,
In the fast-paced city
When,
Suddenly held hostage,
By a few,
Aliens with long beards,
And black-masks,
Gunned down,
By them ruthlessly,
Leaving their families,
Completely impotent,
Fighting with,
The corrupt system,
Which provides justice,
In the form
Of monetary compensation,
Can precious human life,
Be equal to money?
