The Empire Of The Poor.

The Empire of the Poor: Poverty is not an adornment. Don't embrace it...

In the empire of the poor,
The beggars are the bodyguards;
The beggars are the fighters,
And they are the solicitor. 

In the empire of the rich,
The poor are the beggars,
The beggars are the delinquent
And they can't the law reach. 

In the empire of the poor,
The beggars are the Lazarus;
They resurrect from death to poverty,
Every insult is a deformity tightly embraced.

In the empire of the rich is power;
The power to drive out demons
In the “Mary Magdalenes" of the society.
The seven demons of needs. 

The firstborn of the poor,
The poorest of the poor,
Are those who can
But don't.
