Equality of Man
It is enshrined in many constitutions.
All men are, or born, equal
Their rights are equal
Their opportunities shall be equal.
I ponder how can all men be equal when millions are doomed
Starve and die as they do not have right to work
No means of livelihood
No roof on their head
No medical care for them
For old and infirm there is no pension.
Thus man’s equality is a farce
If all men are to be equal,
Though born unequal,
They should have equal right to education
No destination between rich and poor
When they grow up,
They should have guaranteed job
Minimum decent wage
All should have access to similar health service
Not that rich go to Five Star Hospitals
And poor wait for admission in General Hospitals.
Unless such provisions for equality are enshrined
The constitution, to the uplift of poor, remains blind
Democracy is aristocracy
Mention of equality in constitution is hypocrisy.
