War on (the) Poor

People voiceless

numerous and everywhere

are the people in struggle.

Those who fight to eat

who fight to eat every night.


for food


for change.

People look down and away

like ants on the sidewalk

not caring if they get squashed.


with no soul or care

Doesn’t matter to them

when another cries.

No war on the middle class

a war on the poor

on those most vulnerable

who can only help themselves.

But no matter how small

an ant is

an army of ants can take all

in its path

the bug squashers need to watch their way

or step down from their high horse.
