Understanding Planet Earth

Watching Slumdog Secret Millionaire yesterday, makes me wonder
Why this world has no balance
Some kids don’t seem to have a chance.

*

About a Multi-millionaire Indian Lady in London
Who for a week or so went to live in a slum
And left them with money to run projects when she was gone.

*

The poor are in Africa, Europe and so called “1st world” America
But we can’t be angry with those who have money
Lots are kind and donate generously.

.

But still………………..Planet Earth has no balance

 

Some people live in a Pent house
Some live in a Cardboard box, next to a mouse.

What some earn in half a year
Some earn that same amount in an hour.

 

Some for years will save £5000 to buy a car
Some will spend £5000 on a bag in an hour.

 

The guilty, with money escape prison with a fine
The lacking spends years there paying for his crime.

 

Most who drive flashy cars and live in a posh home
Look deeper, it’s from a loan that covered a previous loan.

 

Maybe if the whole world was just one Country
We’d have no such thing as debt and Poverty.

 

Just my deep thoughts as usual………….
