Poverty

Poverty: a dumpster lid for a dinner table
Offensive to people who think your unstable
Vagabonds panhandle coins from the giver
Evenings confined to a bag by the river
Recycling of cans for a smoke or a beer
Thankful for warmth in a cold, rainy year;
You too,can make this scene;lose your job and lose your green!

    I know of a few folks who are in this situation...it sucks. Your poem was very well written...and all too true.

    These things do happen but there is help in America through DFAC and charitable organizations but I know some can't get help for one reason or another...Keep the writes to remind us of our duty to help others coming. Sara
