DESTITUTION

By c j, www.PoetryPoem.com/heartunes    Unlock all Features - Upgrade to Poetry Prime

God says to love your enemies
Treat them as brothers
So I used to give them
$20 bills
At Walmart or on the street

That was before I faced
Destitution myself
Sitting here without electricity
In front of my computer
Destitution today is
Having my Internet bill paid
But no power to make it go

Destitution's
The
Word
Of
The
Day
That
I
Know.
