Who’s Whose

01 Oct
The haves and the have nots
constitute the whole human societal world.

We can't be sure of the  membership
for each grouping on this side of the border;
the invisible boundary of a life's span.

There is a registry, an accounting
for whoever belongs where. We can inspect
fruit and infer, but all the evidence is not yet in.

Those who have, have. Those who don't-- do not.

It's cut and dry; currently, it's whosoever will now
& will be whosoever did, when-- predicated upon
having, or not having a person.
