WALKABOUTSVERSE 87 OF 230

Poem 87 of 230:  FOR THE POOR

                                         For
                                  The   poor,
                             We should give
                          A  chance  to  live -
                       To rest, work & play -
                     Day-to-day   in   a   way
                That has not the need to bid,
             To   those   atop   the   pyramid,
        For   the   essentials   of   human   life.
    Then, when world suffering is far less rife
  And  all  folk  live  above  the  poverty  line ,
This here poet, I promise, will cease to whine.
