Gary Beck… Belated Understanding


Belated Understanding

The sounds of construction
do not reassure the needy
that all is well,
while the rich profit
and the poor do without.
In a dual economy
where a few have plenty
and many struggle
to provide for loved ones,
a new building going up
only reminds the deprived
they do not matter
to the privileged.
