Poverty's Shoes

walk a mile with me
  in Poverty's Shoes,
Society of Students Against Poverty's Logoperhaps your pov
  will reconcile
  with my views

see the many children
  scrambling without playing?
their playground is a waste heap
  where they find what's worth saving
the purest capitalists
are among the poor;
no school gives doctorates
to these economic intimates. 

need is the perfect teacher
for profit-taking:
wait for chaos, pounce 
on what comes loose 
during the shaking
