The Poverello - Poem by Jon Edward Walker

at the shelter the other day,
the Pov,
a young girl was breast feeding
and all the homebums
stared and drooled
she was 16 or 17 maybe
not bad looking.
It was rather disgusting,
their gawking
one old man began
to cuss and yell
“it’s guys like you that make
me ashamed to be a man”
“y’all make me disgusted”
some of them stopped drooling
most paid no mind
to the views of society
they were bums
this was boobs.
