A Life & Plan Of A Homeless Man


The life and times
Are filled with
Challenges
For this
Homeless man
Who goes to sleep on the streets
With a torned blanket in hand
Waking up in the morning
To the sound of clatter
Glass bottles and
Aluminum cans
Being discarded by the sanitation man
At times fortunate to
Sleep on the coaches
Of others, whenever he can
To hear the sound of rain
Is a sure check to make other plans
Life is more than an adventure
For this multi- faceted man
Who gets by each day
By the seat of his pants
From his point of view
He is doing the very best
That he can

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
