Mister Poverty - Poem by Buxton Shippy

Mister Poverty is a strong man,
Built with potent genes;
Been around since the dawn of creation,
Infecting each generation.

Mister Poverty is a cunning man,
Steeped in the art of deception.
He'll make you lie,
He'll make you steal,
A deft illusionist indeed.

Every time wealth hits him
He bounces back.
Every time health sees him,
He hides under a rock,
And he's determine to beg
Even if standing on one leg.

Don't take him lightly
Or underestimate him,
He's stink and flexible.
And when you try to break him,
