Poverty Is

Poverty is
       the raw butt of an ugly mutt
       the found treasure of a cigarette butt
       little girl don't be a slut
       or you'll start showing in your gut
       live out your life in a rotten hut
       never getting out of the rut.


Poverty is
       a dog who believes in you, stays on your side
       too many packs a day you might have died
       yeah, some men lied, but you enjoyed the ride
       and with maternal love you have grown wide
       and though it is to a dump you're tied
       no need to chide, let peace abide.
