The Reviled Man

He sits alone,
The disposable man,
He lives on the streets,
Cursed & damned,

This homeless man,
Dirty & weary,
Has forgotten a life,
Drunk & dreary,

Frowned upon,
Living so low,
Living so wrong,
And dying too slow,

Unnoticed, unseen,
People walk nigh,
He wants to scream,
But they pass him by,

Hollow & gone,
He sits on the street,
Drunk & withdrawn,
And passed out asleep.

    WOW! Oh, Maddy, if the rest of your work is like this..... WOW! Well done! Your words bring the picture into such sharp focus! ! ! The dispair is tangible. The indifference; abhorrent. Your compassion; beautiful. (Report) Reply
