Out on the street.


Out on the street.
To you he's just a bum, To others he's worse than scum.
Not the kinda person you want to meet!
Out on the street.

Dirty old cloths on his back
Look hes sleeping in a sack
In a door way
He's just a bum you say?
Out on the street.

As you walk past you pretend on to see
Remember one day you yourself could be!
Out on the street.

You don't know anything about his past!
Sleeping out in the cold
How long would you last?
Out on the street.

Can you spare some change?
How quickly your life can change.

He was Late with the rent lost his job eviction then relationship fail
But he's kept his nose clean and stayed out of jail he's not even on bail!
Out on the street.
                             Or maybe...
He's just a kid he still remembers the horrible things his father did!
He couldn't take anymore so he walked out the door! He could no longer stand to be beat! That's why he's out on the street.
                            Or maybe...
He's seen things that should never be seen!
That guy you just called a tramp is an ex royal marine.
Out on the street.

    We could do with a lot more verse content like yours. There seems to be an ever growing homeless problem and as you thankfully state, it could happen to anyone for many reasons.
    I chose to leave home and became a street kid very young. In my day there weren't so many but they were not all bad people.
    I think you have written about this subject very well indeed.

      yes, it could happen to anyone. we just do not know! you cannot judge someone just by the way they look or their position in life.. sometimes we just do not know the reason.. very sad story when people have to live on the street and im sure its very difficult..

      great poem, well written
