Soulless Poverty

 

Soulless Poverty

I

A poverty of the mind is soulless thought. Privately proving poverty does not exist. Soulless poverty is seen in with visions of images…commercialization of the soul. With the privacy of soulless poverty shown through empty bank accounts with debts owed to a soulless humanity while saying to themselves, “I am richly blessed.”

II

Humanity strives to prove it has a soul. Soullessness is shown by images…babies crying, mothers weeping, happy family faces gathered. But wise men know poverty when it is seen and there is soulless poverty throughout the tribe of mankind. The tribe swells as pockets empty except for plastic carded purchases from soulless vendors.

III

Fat pockets full of money owed to the fat bankers with plastic rectangles paying for soulless merchandise.  All are part of the soullessness of the tribal society of mankind, while the homeless live with less poverty, at least owning their clothes and cardboard beds. They know true poverty within their soul and cry out for humanity to listen as their trumpets blare. But the soulless tribe is deaf to true poverty.
