just because
you didn’t need it
in the seventies
doesn’t mean
it couldn’t
make sense
in today’s world

it doesn’t mean
you’ve sold out
when given
a choice
of basic comforts
or necessities
or modern day things
over poverty’s

there is an undeniable
tragedy and silliness
a slight defect
of thought
and process
when letting poverty
win and
rule your life
when you
can afford
your world
to be
