Ballad of the Poverties from per month Review

There’s the poverty of the cockroach country and the rusted rest room bowl
The poverty of to thieve foodstuff for the 1st time
The poverty of to mouth a penis for a paycheck
The poverty of candy charity ladling
Soup for the bad who should always be there for that
There’s the poverty of idea poverty of the swollen stomach shamed
Poverty of the degree mill the poll that is going nowhere
Princes of predation permit me inform you
There are poverties and there are poverties

There’s the poverty of inexpensive baggage bursted open at immigration
The poverty of the grew to become head, the prevented eyes
The poverty of bored intercourse of tormented sex
The poverty of the bounced fee the poverty of the dumpster dive
The poverty of the pawned horn the poverty of the smashed analyzing glasses
The poverty pushing the sheeted gurney the poverty cleansing up the puke
The poverty of the pavement artist the poverty passed-out on pavement
Princes of finance you who've no longer lain there
There are poverties and there are poverties

There is the poverty of hand-to-mouth and door-to-door
And the poverty of reports patched-up to promote there
There’s the poverty of the kid thumbing the Interstate
And the poverty of the bride enlisting for war
There’s the poverty of prescriptions who can afford
And the poverty of ways could you ever finish it
There is the poverty of stones fisted in pocket
And the poverty of the village bulldozed to rubble
Princes of weaponry who've certainly not tasted war
There are poverties and there are poverties
There’s the poverty of wages stressed out for the funeral you
Can’t get to the poverty of the wage cut
There’s the poverty of human hard work provided silently at the curb
The poverty of the no-contact felony visit
There’s the poverty of backyard sale scrapings unfold
And rejected the poverty of eviction, marriage ceremony mattress out on street
Prince enable me let you know who won't ever study via phrases
There are poverties and there are poverties

You who shuttle through deepest jet like a housefly
Buzzing with the opposite flies of plundered poverties
Princes and courtiers who won't ever research via words
Here’s a reflect you could inspect: take it: it’s yours.
