I live on a park bench.
You, Park Avenue.
Hell of a distance
Between us two.
I beg a dime for dinner-
You got a butler and maid.
But I'm wakin' up!
Say, ain't you afraid
That I might, just maybe,
In a year or two,
Move on over
To Park Avenue?

A contrast between a poor person(probably African American) and a wealthy man, who sounds white.
No words are wasted here.
What words in the poem led you to believe the poor person is black?
a hopeful write of what might come about in a caring land?
Very good, a strong message in a concise piece
