race.religeon.politics.POVERTY.education.status.responsibility.

Serving the greater good of the wealthy,
Appears to be the purpose of the poor.
Stress, that questions "what are we living for,"
Divides the healthy and the unhealthy.
The undefined actions, of the stealthy,
Separate the "have less" from the "have more."
And, the "have less" stand behind the "closed door,"
So, in a hole, they may very well be.
About the poor, the words that get juggled
Look like statistics, posted on a chart.
So, out of their minds, their pride gets smuggled,
Since poverty is a poisonous dart,
Creating problems for those who struggle.
A situation that affects the heart.
