by Dr M C Gupta
How the rich exploit the poor.
Some till the land and grow the grain,
Some buy and then sell it.
The former fill othersâ€™ tummy,
The latter their pocket.
Some cannot make the two ends meet,
Some have many treasures.
The former have to sweat it out,
The latter have pleasures.
The pleasures flow from the busâ€™ness
Of bartering labour
For money, as if theyâ€™re doing,
The former a favour.
