Poverty Comes In Different Lots

Rating: 5.0
Poverty finds its way in mean lots,
faces not normal faces a lot.

Not so fine mind from the beginning
is a genetic plot.

A family not given a lot is famished
of food, and struggles with stocks.

Emotional poverty leaves a lot to be
desired, and little love left, hits the rocks.

Uneducated, never visits schools, books
are used to prop up tables without food.

Wealthy, poverty stricken, don't have any
reserves to face another day, which way?

Nations face their own poverty led by dead
wood, feed themselves with caviar.

The dictators of this world flop about leaving
the population to face their own solutions.

Not enough votes idiots start to look for them
in moats, picking most of trees, counting leaves.

Truth hurts but you ve nailed it. Some poverty is in the mind. A poverty mindset. Instead of doing something productive holding a begging bowl

Poverty has many faces. A perceptive write. An astute observation.
