Every Rich Man

Every rich man is sure
somebody is else is getting more.
No matter how much he has,
someone else may be getting some
and he wants that too.
It’s either women or Indians or Asians
or blacks or Jews
or the Anthropophagi
who might be getting something,
the rich man wants.
If the poor are thrown a crumb,
the rich howl with rage.

April, 1990
