    Back stabbing is the game you play
    Destroying lives is your only way
    Evicting people from their home
    The streets is where you’d see them roam
    You pretend to care but that’s not true
    The only one you care for would be you
    The ugly look upon your face
    In my opinion what a disgrace
    I hope that you will feel the way
    Homeless people feel each day

    A woman in Time

    Tired worn out face \
    Salt and pepper hair sets the pace.
    The fragile body that I see
    Respected lady, I don agree
    She lives alone, no one around
    A couch, two chairs is all I found
    A peaceful soul I must admit
    Continue forward do not quit \
    Life must go on it’s the way to go
    Content and happy this precious soul

    Your above the law
    Skeletons in your closet
    Defeat will be yours

    No where to hang out
    It sucks when you are homeless
    Oh well life goes on

    To live and let live
    My brothers and sisters
    This is the best way

    Please drive with caution
    Innocent lives are at stake
    It may even be you

    Sun rises again
    Dark clouds will turn to clear skies
    Victory is ours
