They walkslowly
        in the constant eye ofthe tornado
    the world spins aroundthem
            clutchinga brown paper bag
        or perhapsa child's hand
     or the can withwhich they beg
They walkslowly
        through this unrealworld
            aworld with littlemeaning

   to have or havenot
     in their torn, tatteredclothes
and battered shoes
They walkslowly

    the have-nots of thisworld
             seeklove from anyone
