Is criminality only a way

Dedicated: To United Kingdom riots, 2011

No doubt, person isn’t wise,
Honest and industrious.
Why is criminality?
Raping, killing, robberies and lootings etc,
When a person is greedy or selfish,
Fails to gain benefit or enjoy pleasure,
He makes excuse,
Or offers options. 
Or condemn others.
He is religious, academic or professional,
And has no job.
I don’t need a wife but partner,
Want to live together,
To compare a living standard,
Wife, horrible to accept someone’s nature,
Partner, good idea, you can change at any time.
Children, too expensive,
Hard to afford,
Brother, sisters, mother and father,
Headache, always seeking free help,
Support , what?
This is my business,
I’m capable, 
I know how to live a better life. 
Education, what does teach us?
Religion, what does offer us?
Social justice, economic reforms,
Are right to claim personality?
Can we change something?
Are we able to do it?
Is it right to kill, rob, rape someone?
Can we learn about disappointments?
What is our target?
How can we satiate a greedy and selfish soul?
