if you really

want to know a country

its geography topography

indigenous peoples

travel by bicycle

better still: walk

be broke

labour amongst the unskilled

working for low pay

live amongst the lost

for they understand

where the battle lines lie

& anybody who has ever tasted

the bitter of being broke

will tell you

the rich will give you nothing

of their everything

while the poor will share everything

of their nothing

& this was always

will always be

so
