Poverty Trap - Poem by Yonder Boatcar

Being poor is like being trapped
Inside of a rusty cage
Violence is a symptom
Of the frustration that it creates
Drugs and alchohol are often used
As a temporary escape
But the real answer
Is facing the problem everyday
Trying to find a way to freedom
By earning an honest wage
It seems hard when you're unskilled and poor
But theres one thing for sure
Crime doesn't pay
