“Cutbacks 2011” by Maggie Sue Traynor

           With all the cutbacks, I’d just like to know

                                                When the weather turns bad, where do we go?

                                                When the weather is nice, it’s easy to say

                                                Let’s walk to the park, where we can spend the day.

                                                When the weather turns cold and the snow hits the ground

                                                Not many people will be hanging around.

                                                Being homeless you know is not something we choose

                                                It’s like the role of the dice–some win, some lose.

                                                There needs to be a place to weather the storm

                                                For it is our right to be healthy, dry and warm.

                                                When you’re in your own home with plenty of heat

                                                Try to imagine life out on the street.
