Societies Shame

Societies Shame 02/09/2018 Toothless grin implores Pleading eyes so pained People passing ignore Beggar should be ashamed Compassionless society Lazy get a job Regardless of sobriety People lose all hope Victim of circumstance Job loss, mental health Heartbreaking happenstance Me relative wealth Reach down deep Cashless society No place to sleep One eye open nightly No change given Change a mans life Suicide driven Problematic rife Never with cash Unable to help Make a mad dash Bank Commonwealth Change for a man Giver not receiver My helping hand Made a believer Help others I implore So much to gain My heart left raw Society to blame

Thank you Warren, I’m tearing up reading it again. Such an awful situation for Humans to be treated worse than our pets. Sick times
