Poem 1653 - Old Man In The Park

In a shell of pressed paper, an old man sleeps.
His thin body trembles, from his real dream.
Woe and mercy let loose in time! 
Fable.
A table.
Outside! 
Gray hair and dark teeth.
Smiles, to sad to weep.
Swollen feet! 
In a shell of pressed paper, an old man sleeps.
His thin body trembles, from his real dream.

    It's so sad that governments focus on weapons of war rather than improving the living conditions of humanity
