The poem is titled 'The Law of the World' and the poet describes how the poor and the downtrodden get a raw deal, citing examples from nature. Sheep, calf, cow, those who do not have a savior, get slaughtered by a butcher, but no one dare go to the forest to butcher a lion! Such is the law of this world.
