Bizarre Braggarts

My Creative Process class includes an assignment to create something during each of the next 22 days (35 in all).  Many years have past since I wrote poems on a regular basis--I was in my 20's when I did so (I'm now 70).  My project will be to write a short poem each day and post it on this blog. I hope you will find them interesting. 

Bizarre Braggarts 

I have heard the rich romanticize poverty
And the severe struggles of deprivations
Touching neighborhoods with only furtive visits
Relating happy tales of close escapes
Having more empathy for their pet hounds
Than for suffering children left in the streets.
