    I wonder if hungry people
    know that Devinci sold a
    postcard size sketch today
    for eleven million dollars

    I wonder if they know that
    devinci's been dead
    quite some time now

    yet their hunger still breathes

    I wonder if homeless people
    can understand that devinci's
    postcard sketch has a new home
    now

    while they seek shelter under
    bridges
    SOciety's pointed down nose
    and the standard of living

    I wonder why morality has been
    crippled
    vertebrae smashed in by
    the torch of the statue of LIEberty
    and rolled around in a circle chasing
    it's own tail

    eleven million dollars

    I'm sure those of the "2H" club
    -hunger and homeless-
    understand
