Globalization of Poverty and Wealth

how come the global globe of globalization
shine dull and bright in swing of geographical discrimination? 
why do some share gains, count millions of profit
while others whine, wail and wane in forfeit and surfiet? 
why are some roads a thoroughfare
and others cul de sac affair? 
why can you buy so so freely, and sell at will
but many buy very very hard, and hardly can sell? 
what kind of game is it
where one player is a spectator of sort
and another a referee and competing player? 
why do some bear
full portion of pandemics and perdition
while some share larger of limited portion
of all sum of the earth's fortune? 
why do you take their gold for a token
and sell them 'chains' of thousand dollars? 
why take their diamond and oil for mortars
and bullets that mix their cold blood with brown sands? 
why give them a crust of the funds
from wealth, 'UNcommon' which their hands, callused
by centuries of unpaid hard labour, gathered? 

Why? Why? big brother! ! ! why?
