On the subject of being poor (Free verse) by Stephen Robins
Imagine, if you will, Christening your child Colleen, Because they don’t prescribe the pill, To children aged fourteen. And what a Christening to behold, Toasted with Special Brew, The mother in Argos gold, The baby given a tattoo.

Up the ladder: ROAD BLOB!!!
Down the ladder: Belgium and rose tears

I assume by that you mean this is fairly brown, but tarnished by the occasional flecks of coke white?

This is a very nice poem. How true, how true. Why Colleen? I thought Sharon was more traditional.
