Sunday Sonnet

What force could give the world push it needs
To cease to have the poor with us always
A leader bold or simply more good deeds
A pill to zap our predatory ways
It’s really something when you parse it out
The wealthy cash in with impunity
And then support without the slightest doubt
Our several systems of philanthropy
Hospitals universities and jails
Peace-keepers shelters think-tanks UNICEF
And even when this noble structure fails
We rarely contemplate those who get left
We read escapes art sections and the like
And whoosh these dour declensions take a hike
