Hatred Of The Dispossessed - Poem by Oskar Hansen

Hatred by the Dispossessed
On the Silverberg in my home town its name came
from a poor man who found silver coin there,
he handed the coin to the police who thought he had
stolen the coin and was feeling guilty about it.
The man got ten years although no one came forward
claiming the coin, eventually the authority confiscated
the coin which helped in building a house for the poor
the dispossessed that had never slept in a bed.

The honest man was freed after five years someone
somewhere had a conscience and pulled the right strings.
The innocent was one of the first people sent to
the poor house, but he had not forgotten what had been
don to him so he sat fire to the place. He was seen by
the top window looking out in a circle of burning hate.
