Irony

by Simeon Koh

Book to be read
  Sits on a shelf
Toys to be played with
  Collected in their boxes
Side dishes at Korean restaurants
  Left uneaten by Koreans only
Phones for calling
  Used for Candy Crush
Nukes made to kill
  Never fired (yet)
Money earned
  Never used
Drugs to heal
  Abused
The poor to be helped
  Taken advantage of
His Love freely given
  Rejected
