My first attempt to write a multi-verse diamante: about the horrors of modern living for the poor.

1.
Now
Hopeless, lost
Hurting, hating, harming
Dour, dire, dirty, depressing
Tearing, tormenting, torturing,
Helpless, wary
Today
2.
Living
Hungry, lonely
Hating, hunting, harvesting
Is there no hope?
Teasing, terrorising, torching
Harried, watchful
Suffering.
