My lovely innocent baby, just a coin receiving,
Being made to beg by your helpless sibling,
So pathetic and so deplorable!
Alms of one coin! Unimaginable!
So little help? Shocking!
What indifference! Heart rending!
One of us the baby is, so hurting!
So needy an individual,
Your tender age so vulnerable,
Where has our humanity gone?
Like the wind, gone?
Has it become immune to the suffering
Of a baby, a destitute human being?
What about the government’s duty?
What about the citizens’ duty?
Are we to stones turned?
Have we become too hard hearted?
Where are we heading?
What are we conquering?
Why don’t we reach our conscience?
Why don’t we remember life’s transience?
Much is said on equality,
Peace and justice
Conferences and glib talk over a thousand
Are being held in all the lands.
What we need is to give immediate help, not only talking,
Uphold human rights, remove the suffering,
Of these miserable beings.
