Trickle economics

It’s a terrible shame
having to kneel
for nickels and dimes;
a pittance to plead
for your pennies
while
greed gives you gold.

I hate this,
my living by waiting
for trickles of funds
from your table of plenty
just hand me a twenty.

Crouching beggar by
Pablo Picasso

A second quadrille with the word Nick used in nickles for De at dVerse
