This Man

January 25, 2010
By Anonymous

A man of age thirty
Looks so bitter and dirty
Stands alone
Sadly without a home
Nobody to care for him
So cold, so hungry, so slim
He wears a raincoat and flip flops
An overgrown beard that won’t stop
Standing in the middle of oncoming traffic
Holding a sign with “Spare Change” written on it
What got this man in this situation
A man who one day had many ambitions
Now has nothing to look forward to
Oh what is a man to do
Someone help this man find his way
Find his way to a better day
