Am I Really Poor? - Poem by Gbeti gaius Kafui

Am really poor?
As a cottager,
am i really poor?
I have rivers.
What you have is a pool.
Am i really poor? .
As a cottager,
I grow my own food.
What you do as a rich man is buy.

Am i really poor as a villager?
I have stars and the moon.
At night.
What you have as a rich man are lanterns.
I have many dogs to cater for.
The most you have is two.
You have walls to protectyou.
What i have are friends.

Your encyclopedias
Does not wealth more than my bible.
You have plots of lands.
What i have is mountains.
Am i really poor?
