PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot
In Passing by D. Avery Maybe poverty is about living in a dirty place unkempt and some will say the poverty is in people not caring enough to put their trash in a barrel; to clean up, show some self-respect and few will say the poverty is in people not caring enough to share Earth's resources to look at the world as their own yard unfenced or they’ll say it in passing as they continue with their busy lives.
This is a second post in response to this week’s W3 prompt brought to us by the current Poet of the Week, Murisopsis. They would have us write about poverty in any poetic form, in exactly 14 lines. Go to The Skeptic’s Kaddish to link up and to read the other poets’ work. I worked with American Sentences or really, a run-on sentence with line breaks but yep, 17 syllables per stanza. At 74 words it fits that criteria for Friday Fictioneers , but as it is not fiction in story form I won’t link in there but do need to admit that the photo, by Roger Bultot, gave this poem a boost.
