the poverty line

The poverty line
It is not easy to define

There must be a difference
Between towns and cities

Even in villages
The poverty line will be different

Once a general consensus is adopted
The pool may become lopsided

Even in Kuala Lumpur
The monies earned can't survive

So will these people are poor?
End of the month they have nothing much

They live day by day
Month by month to survive

Once the economy turns bad
They will suffer in distress

No jobs no monies
No saving but bills to pay

The basket must be varied
It can't be lump together

Now PH government has to look into it
The outsider's report showed we got it wrong

It is better to admit mistakes
Then show grand standing on it
