Review of The Multitude by Ellen Hinsey

The Multitude by Ellen Hinsey was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on January 11, 2013.  It is a poem about the hopelessness of the "have nots" of the world.  The haunting images drive the poet's message home, right to the final, chilling couplet.

We in the West take our good lives for granted and complain about the pettiest of things.  It would not hurt every Westerner to read Ms. Hinsey's beautiful, terrible, and thought-provoking poem.
