Some people

Why are you on the streets?
because
I’m homeless,
no excuse says plod and gets
the nod to fine the guy,

how am I gonna pay when
I have only the day for currency
and the night to worry me?

not my problem says plod,
if you’re a junkie talk to ‘Frank’
if you’re a Christian talk to God
if you’re anything other mate
talk to the magistrate

and so it goes,
