Just another homeless guy

It’s another day and he’s lying up in the street

He wakes up to the sound of loud traffic

The sun glares on him baking him like chicken in foil

He wears tattered clothes, no shoes on his feet

An old newspaper as his blanket

Torn cartons for a bed

A purpose for life no longer there

He’s lost his family, his friends and his home

His food is half baked vegetables, second hand food

He’s wearing a ragged coat and a beaten hat

He’s stooped over, looking old

Poor and unemployed

Homeless and hungry

People look on him as they’re passing by

Thought of him as a joke

Just another homeless guy

Another bum in the street

Chilling out on the dirty side of town

Sad, it’s like he almost doesn’t count!
