Help For The Poor

Forty Word Poem:

Poverty-trapped and poverty-stricken
To consider children in need is our mission.
Vintage harvest, but too small a yield;
Equality for everyone would be the ideal.
Bread must be shared now and evermore
Poverty's a subject worth fighting for.
 
Joyce Hemsley

  58.     

The problematic child

Necessity is the mother of invention,
People say. Then we can say like that:
Wealth is the mother of comforts,
And poverty, of meanness.
Wealth is the mother of indolence too.
So is poverty, of viciousness.
Wealth and poverty near by
Deliver discontent,
Which is a problematic child.

  59.     

romancing the poverty of other people

you look at the poverty of other people
romancing it like a metaphor in your poetry
the color of a man's unwashed shirt with mud
and blood, dried sweat,
the sound of a hungry baby like the sound
of thunder coming from the breasts of mountains
the ignorant woman like a beautiful native naked
and bathing in the river and rising like a famous nude painting
their poverty to the rhythm of some blues
the colors in brown, and black and violet and scarlet
the trembling hands and biting lips and blank stares
the blackest background ever
to a future as bleak as ember
to a poverty hopeless as ever.
 
RIC S. BASTASA

  60.     

Rousseau Goes Zen

Give me back my poverty
Said Jean Jacques drifting through the trees
Possessions are not liberty
Give me back my poverty
This myth of private property
Will bring the species to its knees
Give me back my poverty
Said Jean Jacques drifting through the trees
 
M Barton
