Shun child labour

By: Amb. Salahuddin Choudhry
The writer is a former diplomat

S          surely since time immemorial a child

H          has been known to be father of nation

U          underscoring parents to chide and guide

N         nurture care love to be with all emotion

C          chartering the right course for all their life

H          honest humble loyal correct yet brave

I           in a world of afflictions as seen rife

L          labour to shine labour to rise and pave

D          dreams to dream many times some coming true

L          labour not as a child all in duress

A          act in harmony in tandem as crew

B         b’ar not alone we are there to caress

O         one and all by acts of rights like sabre

R         reach heights in life to say shun child labor.
