Lost in poverty

Angry 

Messed up

So forgotten,

Left to decay

Going rotten,

Trickle down people

Living off hope

Forgotten people

Turning to dope.

Given little

Tossed aside,

Going feral 

Lives are wild,

Making ends meet

Best they can,

People who don’t 

Fit the plan.

Limited in education

Using booze and drugs

As recreation,

Just to shut out 

being left

On the side,

They got symptoms 

They can’t hide

Depression.

Live in houses hardly fit

For human beings

To exist,

But does society 

Care for them,

Obviously not

Or it would

Be sharing.

Media lables

Them as scum,

Living in their

Social slums,

Beats on them 

for being dross,

A whole section

Of society lost. 

So they say,

Fuck the system

Fuck the cops,

Criminalised 

At all cost,

Tossed in prison 

For petty crimes

Authority acting blind,

To their social depravity

Forced to bend down 

on their knees,

Forced to beg 

forced to plead,

For  the scraps

From the table

Where we eat.

Trickle down

Existence 

Trickle life,

Systemic failure

Of the left and right,

To address

The poverty,

And how it deals

With lost people

In a fractured

Society.

  1. You illustrate the plight of the poor very well, and the prejudice they face,
    I wrote a poem along these lines some time ago:

    One man’s paradise is often another’s perdition
    And from prejudice arise people’s positions,
    All seek selfish weal, to shift every woe
    Upon those they deem as detestable foes,
    Duty and Sacrifice — so often prated by
    Those beyond the burdens of their lies,
    If both men and women could but empathize
    And see another’s pain as their own torment,
    They would rein in their entitlements
    And make allowances for the needs of others,
    For when all place first the comfort of another
    Who could possibly be left wanting or enraged
    In a world remade in kindly heavenly image?

Blog sobre notícias e política com um viés de esquerda, onde os bravos nunca ousaram percorrer e que não espere deste o obsequioso silêncio dos covardes, amortecendo consciências, desarmando resistências que só no fátuo da retórica da ideia, da moral e da ética é que se venera seu oponente evitando a sedição!
