  • Pauper Surplus

    The poor
    are never in dearth,
    for we are determined to
    replenish their ranks,
    and by greed,
    multiply their members.
    You may be told
    That this is not so.
    But rumbling entrails
    echo their truths.
    The grated concrete bounty,
    the Purple Hearted tragedy,
    Of Honourable discharge
    and dishonourable regard.
    And find
    the pauper surplus
    bolstered,
    by statesman's
    Protestant ethic pander.
    Plunder the
    desperate coffers bare,
    then starve the flesh,
    without a care.

    Arrow straight to the greedy, uncaring heart, Dwayne. Bullseye!
