Sometimes we think that the other one is to be blamed, but is it so? My poem.

Who are you blaming?

And who are you naming?

For all the atrocities dished out.

The cries of the broken-hearted

The loneliness of families parted

Do you know what's it all about?

 

The beggar in the street,

Hardly anything on his feet.

With nothing at all to eat,

Looking through the bin, for rotten meat.

 

Who are you blaming now?

They laugh as they milk the cow.

Their bread is on the table,

This is real, and yet it is a fable.

 

No one takes the blame,

And no one gets the fame.

It is all just like a game,

That's how it was, when I came.
