This Old Man - Poem by Angel A. Lockwood

I met a homeless old man,
the other day in Washington, Dc
at Union Station
His counternance was very grim
He had the look of devastation
He begin screaming and crying while
Shouting, what happened to our nation?
He continue to say, so many of the jobs
as well as people's homes are gone
We really need a revealation
As others watched and bowed their heads,
while some even turned up their noses, and
others hid there faces
He continued to shout also asked other questions
Which one of you would take our losses,
better yet trade circumstances by
standing in our places?
He ended, by stating that something is greatly wrong and
the matters seems to be the results of,
Simply poor communication
I think for some, that day. at Union Station
found the old man's demeanor, and situation to be a jaw breaking/
Eye opening situation
Maybe even for some who looked upon the old man,
Had the opportunity to witness, a possible revealation?
That old man,
It was certainly sad to hear
Also look upon
that old man

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A program comes on Tv named this old house
