“The Haves vs the Have-nots” – Makati, 11 July 2016

what lies
beyond
the vast
divide
that keeps
us
from our
brethren?

why
must there
be a
distinction:
those who
have,
those who
don’t,
the high
and mighty,
the poor
and downtrodden?

where
is it
written
that only
a few
can be
blessed
while the
bulk
of humanity
struggles and
starves and
tries
to live?
