The Less-accused.














In the rich countries
people think they are poor
if they have to think
a little bit before they buy -
a new freezer, a new car,
an electronic game or gadget.

They haven't an idea
of what it is like to queue
for two days for a bag of flour
or a kilo of potatoes.
They are the desperately
poor in spirit,
who haven't an idea
of what they need.
They know only
the hierarchy of visible status
in the Empire of Greed.
