Haves And Have-Nots - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

The same air they breathe
under the one sky.
They share the light & darkness equally.
The same water they use
but the money-tree
never grows
in their hard bitten soil.

    nothing richly built, on quicksand remains too long.

    hardbitten soil becomes valuable property... when that's all that's left to stand on. (Report) Reply
