    Excellent catch to describe the irony of modern global living and exposing the fate of those who face such situations. Thank you for your sweet comments on my Bible story poem. Love and best wishes..Ravindra.....Debbie Duncan

    I get what your saying Debbie, It's the same all over, has been farmed out to those who can do it the cheapest irrespective of the conditions of the workers. Nice work. Take care, Richard

    Sowing machine sweat shop the sweat of the brow of the under child, used and cast aside with a downcast dial, money, greed the devils work, will the rich return their greed to lurk? reborn AGAIN Nigerian style, a greedy rip-off jerk... Don "Irony " Debbie Duncan

    What makes it worse is that those folks truly need the work that those sweatshops provide and that their families need for their own children to work in them. It's a vicious circle. This is truly an example of irony.
