Poverty

By Dorothy Schram

I see the youth, sitting on the street

Begging for money, for something to eat

With empty tummies, how hard can it be

When, there are so many living in poverty

­

A woman in despair, goes to a shelter

With all her children, she is seeking beds

No materials, no possessions, has been evicted

With hopes that her family, gets fed

­

A man is destitute, he’s living on the street

He can’t get up, to get the help he needs

A lonely, withdrawn, a helpless human being

Yes, he’s a person living in real poverty

­

They call some feeding places, soup kitchen

With sandwiches, it makes a full meal

Some macaroni dinners, some wieners & beans

These luxury meals, will keep you filled

­

A lot of people go to their local food banks

Their pride has taken a really big blow

They need help to put food on their tables

Our family income, is at an all-time low

­

Lots of people, are drinking powder milk

And the “Drop-ins” are a really big deal

They clothe & feed you, basic needs & shelter

Yes, people, poverty is oh so very real

­

Some people have filed for bankruptcy

And they are really down on their luck

Believe me, no more middle class citizen

Yeah, being in poverty, really does suck
