*rich Things And Poor People

Marching, marching,
to democratic drums.
Hungry mouths are open and
this is not a party and
this is not a pose.

This is a souvenir, expensive,
and I collect them
and this thing makes me happy
and I deserve my little toy.

I didn't post this oral incomplete version here, and I don't know how to get it removed. I can't remember if I posted the poem. I don't know what the asterisk is for or why the " r" is lower case so I'm thinking I did not post this. The poem first appeared in Black Bear Review. I wish it could be removed as it appears here against my wishes.
