Starved eyes pray
For bright horizon
Roofless hut

World always discriminated rich and poor. This gap always increased. Prayer is the only hope for poor, praying for a square of meal, praying for basic amenities, praying for their shelter. Irony is depicted in last two lines. Mesmerized, on how the way world runs, on how we celebrate, on how we survive, on how one wishes for brightness in a roofless hut. Attempt to show the dark side of "Mesmerization".

This Haiku is written for The Heights Of Haiku - April 2012. The prompt for today is Mesmerize.
