seriously she said do you know

that some people are so poor they

have to watch black and white TV?

as if evidence enough of suffering

and i replied (later to the clown

who stretched my hoops to balance

the laughs) hell

there are people who would 

eat a black and white TV

if they had one.

-- douglas brent smith, 1978
