Since 2001 I have lived here
Seeing you near
On the corner of 148th
Inside McDonald’s or maybe in Toni’s Pizza where you wait
You wait and ask day and night for some change
Change for food or change for a plate
You say you used to work for the Steel Mill
So that tells me that you’re not doing this against your will
All of us struggle, some more some less
Mr. Blvd. Man you know you can get yourself out of this mess
I give you a quarter or two here and there
But Mr. Blvd. Man East Chicago will no longer support you nor will anyone anywhere
The same brown coat you had last year steady keeps you warm
But Mr. Blvd. Man you know it’s worn
Time to collect those quarters
To get off of those corners
Because Mr. Blvd. Man this can’t go any further
Every day I see you I shake my he and say, man this is out of order
