March Pi-Archimedes #21

survival of the richest

it’s so damn
for the ninety-eight percent
is a race for survival
where being fit means pay up or lose


The Pi-Archimedes verse is:
○ a hexastich, a poem in 6 lines.
○ measured by the number of words in each line 3-1-4-1-5-9 to match the numerical sequence of the first six digits of Pi.
○ unrhymed.

    My resources put me below the federally defined poverty line…however, I’m grateful to get some assistance, i.e., subsidized housing, and state food assistance, and dual medicare/medicaid health coverage. There’s a down-side to it all, mostly the stigma and general disrespect–but it beats living on the street. Like I said, I’m very grateful to have the basics I need, and enough to share–so on sunny days, I guess I’d say I’m “rich” 🙂 I suspect that in some ways I have a better situation than the “working poor” and the 98%–but I can’t speak with any authority.
