Coal riddled ridden
Land of my kindred’s Kindred
Blessed with beauty and kindness
Frightened by woe and the color of my hair
Riches hidden in inferiority complex
Titans pocket my everyone’s kobo
Porous I am to poverty and diseases:
Crying and starving
Ashamed is me coal:
Should I perk up? …Oh yes!
Should I worry on? …. No!
The brainteaser has an answer
“Fight for the brotherhood”: it says.
