Do You Feel Like a Traitor?

He asks, as though we are on

opposing sides.

We are the same, but still –

I do.

 

I am rich in:

time and

flexibility and

resources and

support.

All those crucial elements

I know they starve for.

Parched ground, cracked

from the drought.

 

I feel guilty, not sure I

(c)would return to that

barren wasteland

where they crawl,

materials in tatters,

bleeding liquid on the

tiniest hint of a

green sprout.
