August 23 – International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and Its Abolition

 

23 August – International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its         Abolition

World created by God for the human beings joy and peace
Plenty of prosperity and harmony- to be at ease
Man in his greed, jealousy and avarice, spoiled the world
Good people come to the rescue of the unfortunate bold!

One of the worst crimes against people was ‘slavery’-slave trade
Indulged in by the great farm and land holders- assumed leader
Made the poor to serve as slaves for their life time and their heirs too
Assumed proportion huge- society civilized raised in revolt!

‘Slavery’ abolished, day is remembered all over the globe
Abraham Lincoln did his best with all his might saved the mob
Alas!Among many slavish mentalities till day rule
To get rid of the same, the society is to play its role!

UNESCO declared today as a great day in the world map
“International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave trade
And its abolition” every year August twenty third
And let us thank all those who fought against the criminal trade!
