Born Poor - Poem by Kyle Schlicher

born
into
poverty

walking barefoot
through
childhood

going hungry
without
complaining

taking
baths
on the
back porch
in a tub
filled
with
well water

sleeping
on pallets
laid
out
on the floor

walls
covered
with
old newspapers
giving
the
children
someth ing to read
at
bedtime

(11-05-1975)
