O Poor People



O Poor People


Let us invoke a healthy heart-breaking
Towards the horrible world:
Let us say 0 poor people
How can they help being so absurd,
Misguided, abused, misled?
With unsifted saving graces jostling about
On a mucky medley of needs,
Like love-lit shit,
Year after cyclic year
The unidentifiable flying god is missed.
Emotions sit in their heads disguised as judges,
Or are twisted to look like mathematical formulae,
And only a scarce god-given scientist notices
His trembling lip melting the heart of the rat.
Whoever gave us the idea somebody loved us?
Far in our wounded depths faint memories cry,
A vision flickers below subliminally
But immanence looms unbearably:
TURN IT OFF! they hiss.

I liked the poem, but it could be that I have misunderstood it, though I doubt it.

But listen up: if anyone here thinks that the suffering of others is humorous, I'll be happy to give you a healthy dose of it so that you can judge for yourself.

It's all in a day's work for me.
Just say the word.

The problem of poor people who are deprived from water, as in Palestine, exists also in the United States.
