Gazing Through the Mud Hole

Through a narrow hole
in the mud wall of a hut
I see broken planks of house
of the richest man in the city.
While winter and summer creeps
in to turn the hut into a hell,
the broken window of the mansion
has gathered a crowd
to set it in same design.
The hole indicates the stature of poor
and the life suitable for them in a
so called third world country.
They are just meant to gaze
at rich wonders here.
