In Kinney’s poem ‘The Cold Within’ the poor has prejudice against the rich. He thinks that the rich are idle and he should not use his log to warm the idle rich.
 
Again, the rich man is similarly prejudiced against the poor. He thinks that the poor are lazy and shiftless. So he is concerned with how to keep his wealth safe from the poor.
 
Here, the rich man and the poor man are representative of the entire society. In general all poor and rich people are thus prejudiced against one another.
