Social Justice Poetry

Paucity of Love | A Social Justice Poem by Ananya S. Guha

In huts boiled rice
a family sits
with expectation
especially the children
tearing scraps of paper
biting, eating
and a country moves on
with railway tracks
and trains entering
passengers witness
to seething darkness
it does not matter
what you eat
it matters why you eat
as economists and sociologists define the poverty of experience
paucity of love.
