Homeless Man and His Dog

throw him a nickle

maybe a dime

tell yourself he'll be fine

careful not to look into his eyes

he has feelings

an inconvenient surprise

by his side his loyal companion

a little dog he cannot abandon

throw them a nickle

maybe a dime

tell yourself they'll be just fine

you come home

turn on the light

surely they'll find shelter from the night

you take a shower 

and go to bed

but thoughts of them fill your head

so in your car you go to find

the sad little pair you left behind

    Hey! Thanks for stopping by... It's plain to see you write from the heart. If more would think & write like us,this world would be a better place. :o) Anne Lise- Is one of those people too.
