The Power Of Poverty - Poem by Tim caffery

It drives mothers to their children
To the meaning they provide
To the floundering protection
From Civilization's ruthless side

It drives fathers farther than time
A hunting party with no spoils
To face the eyes of hungry bellies
The heat of which makes brains to boil

Cracks The Youth's imagination upon the shores of need
While they seek sanctuary from torrents & barren seas
Every pinching, piercing pain banks the hunger from their mind
Sustained from all their agonies by the sheer Power of Poverty

It makes countries' armies fortified deep in each people's hearts
Raises leaders up as if 40 days had ate their tombs
National monuments raised in piercing pains celebrated for the work
Whittles prisons from stone & iron fabricated in women's wombs
