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Drunk & withdrawn,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.

Amongst the flowers I

drinking by myself; then lifting
