The dull, lifeless eyes of smiling billionaires
gaze from palace balconies to manicured gardens.
The impish grins of dumpster diving urchins
decorate the world like triple rainbows.
Their rucksacks are their mansions.
Is optimism visions of overflowing goblets,
or savoring the condensation
on an empty glass?
