According to ' The Concise Oxford Dictonary' one can be poor if : 'ill supplied, deficient (in a possession or quality)', or just 'unfortunate, hapless', which by the way is wholly subjective. Some can feel, and ipso facto are, poor for not having a pair of the smoothest silk Clement tubulars; others for longing for a 50th Gruppo. To each his own!
