Bop Poem

by Audrey Funkhouser

The line so small; how do we tell
One day soaring and the next day sinking
The government tells us, “oh it’s ok”
But is it really
Jokes made, fun poked
But do they really know

The line so small
15 percent
Almost 47 million
Living off stamps
We live our best
Sometimes it’s just not enough
Starving and thirsty
This is us

The line so small
Is it moving
Slowly but surely
Charities formed
Money raised
Fed and content are we, in poverty
