So Many Poor People - Poem by Francis Duggan

So many poor people in the World of today
As homeless and outcasts they grow old and gray
In a fair Human World it would not be this way
Such is life as the less sympathetic would say
On Poverty Street where the homeless do dwell
Are people who know all about Earthly Hell
Poorer than they are won't be found anywhere
Those who talk of life's choices ought to visit there
As the gap between the haves and the have nots grows wide
Many of Poverty Street do commit suicide
That many do grow poorer for every new millionaire
Is not what one could call as anywhere fair
So many poor people hungry and sleeping rough
In the twenty first century this is not good enough.
