“Down South”

poverty not hard to find

if you know where to

look in a region, in many

ways, still reeling from

the brotherly rebuke of

a war fought amongst

the houses and fields of

the rich and poor alike,

a place where ignorance

still lurks behind the

occasional battle flag

and progress has been

made but is still slow in

coming, those of us born

native to the land just

trying to get along the

best that we can
