streetsleeper

there’s a

streetsweeper

and it’s heading your way

Where they gonna end up?

Where they gonna be?

It’s dropped beneath zero

killer january

end up in the ward

that can’t afford?

doesn’t have the wealth

to look after your health

end up on the street?

for an anti-meet and greet?

shunned, spat on and burned

how have we not learned?

that they are us

on a different path

whilst we blindly amble by

and laugh

streetsleeper

there’s a

copper’s creeper

and it’s kicking you away

We saw them there

prone and bare

in the December sun

not the only ones

outside the door

outside the castle wall

the ones left outside

the one after the fall

what can I do?

what can you do?

what can we do?

what must we do?

Get them off the street

don’t strip off their sheets

don’t send off their fleet

they need a place to live and eat

Streetsleeper

there’s a

streetsweeper

and it’s brushing you away
