No one respects the poor man

This Shabad is by Bhagat Kabeer Ji in Raag Bhairao on Ang 1159 of Dhan Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Maharaj:
inrDn Awdru koeI n dyie ]
niradhhan aadhar koee n dhaee
No one respects the poor man.

He may make thousands of efforts, but no one pays any attention to him. 1Pause

When the poor man goes to the rich man,
Awgy bYTw pIiT iPrwie ]1]
aagae bait(h)aa peet(h) firaae 1
and sits right in front of him, the rich man turns his back on him. 1

But when the rich man goes to the poor man,

who does not have the Naam, the Name of the Lord, in his heart. 48
