Powers of the rich and the poor

Greed breeding hate
The rich shame the poor
The poor blame the rich
A lucky few have transcended the need.
The rich feel duped
The poor feel dead
A lucky few feel happy.

A rich mans picture of poor
Can be pumping out kids for welfare,
Fake hair, cell phone, and car loan.
But poor people are real people,
Farmers, business owners, artists.
Does a congressman have more power
Than a writer?

A rich man has the power to change,
To choose where to put his money,
To vote outside his own agenda.
A poor man has the power to change,
To pursue a productive purpose,
To live with love and intention.
A lucky few already do.
