Hunting The Poor

I think that we should hunt the poor and catch them in our nets. Then bury them in one big hole As how we treat our pets. Then wait for more to come along and keep the sport alive. To honor Queen and Country spurned where once the dollar thrived. Then threaten them who'd lose a dime to sit amongst the poor. To take what honors left in them to die amongst the sure. Where everyone can see a dollar to understand it's worth. And all the poor who lose a dollar fill in the cost of birth.

Well done, Trevor! I like the fact that you took a risk in writing this tongue-in-cheek. There seem to be so many more homeless people around - it's very sad and there doesn't seem to be an easy solution to the problem...

I agree. I think of the poor as the Government's Poor. Not that charity can't help. Trevor

That's wonderful Carlos. I am so glad it had that good an effect. I was afraid it would be misunderstood. I appreciate the feedback. Thanks; Trevor
