Clearly, I suppose,
the poor have difficulties
but they push a dumpster
full of desperation and disease –
wasting their meager strength and time
because they’ll never get anywhere
pushing a dumpster they’re inside.
If there are solutions
they’re difficult and distasteful –
made more so
because they’re expensive –
costing more than I’ve got.
So condemn me not, Sergeant Salvation,
when I put no pennies in your pot
even as you vigorously beat that bell.
The poor will get no money from me,
but they do have my empathy:
the amount of which is massive
even if the display is somewhat passive.
