Sergeant Salvation


Written by Luvgood Carp


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.
