THE POOR AND THE POWERFUL

                                                   












(Picture "stolen" from Daniel's writing blog )
Power corrupts
Poverty rusts
Power poisons
Poverty weakens
The poor look up to the powerful
The powerful look down to the poor

A slice of bread for the bin,
In the home of the powerful
At times they have no time to eat
They think strategies of staying in power
And forget all about food

A slice of bread for a feast,
In the house of the poor
At times they don’t eat
They only epitomize of their next meal
And endure the hunger harassing their intestines
