Our Shame

Imran, 11, left, and Nizam, 11, take a break from their work at a factory in Dhaka

Eleven year old boys,

grey with the dust of their work

file and shape,

stack and pack

in their grim workplace

 

Whilst

we eat chocolate,

wear gold jewellery,

commit with diamonds,

swagger in designer clothes

 

All through poverty

of child labour
