You Fell On the Sidewalk


They played cards
They went to the casino
They were having fun
Not bothering anyone.
Then you fell on the sidewalk.

They drank their beer
They waved to you over joyed
You turned your head
You acted so annoyed.
Then you fell on the sidewalk.

They were gay in your mind
You sniggered and meddled
You turned up your nose
Your thoughts were opinionated and settled.
Then you fell on the sidewalk.

They were without food
You ignored them begging for a penny
You ran as you lied
Said you didn't have any.
Then you fell on the sidewalk.

They were homeless
You spoke down to them as in fear
As you held your head high
They were already oppressed beyond a tear.
Then you feel on the sidewalk.

They had no money
They had no food
They had no place to go
They had no one to encourage a faith life.
Then you fell on the sidewalk.

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
