DAN ALMAJIRI, NA MATA DODON TSAKI (2) Poetic Tee "Here, take a sip"

Almajiri, what an irony of fate
Born of ignorant love, unwanted?...
Pushed into a world unprepared
Finds himself rich in lacking
Things you, I, all take for granted
Begging to breath, to survive
One swallow, small as a swallow
All he wants, to fill a blank space
Gets more, amounts to less
What wouldn't he give
To have a sense, a semblance
Of a normal childhood
Of a family-hood
Of a neighbourhood
Of some completeness
Of being loved by love lost.

Poor soul, a life he craves
For no real reason, denied
Parents devising falsehood
Against the innocent Almajiri
Tarnishing a faith, purified,
Selfishly, meanly, wickedly
Purchasing, coveting wraths
Living a life of lies, of denials
Devoid of decency, thrashed
Shutting all shutters to sanity
To their conscience, all access blocked
Deliberately forgetting all passwords
To doors, windows of responsibility.
