What Is Poor? (I’ll Tell You)

I’m sure a lot of people can relate to this but if not fuck it

Within the context of my family I’m not poor but outside the context of my family I am poor. Meaning that I can’t afford independence. That’s what it means to be poor in my eyes.

Put two hands up if you understand what I’m saying.

Also if you CAN afford independence…meaning no roommate, no government assistance, but you’re barely scraping by (e.g bare essentials despite full-time work) then I would also define that as poor.

UBI will help more Americans afford independence. And that is true liberty.

On The Haiku…

Honestly, I don’t know why the haiku is so celebrated. It’s just a random decree about the length of three lines. Like wooowww. Ok. Who was the brilliant Jap that thought of this? I write haikus from time to time and sometimes I’m like… I can’t believe this is even a thing. I’m gonna make up my own set of rules for a piece of writing and give it a name. Yup.
