NOWHERE TO GO

The night as cold and icy
I shivered from head to toe,
I sat down in this damp doorway
Because I just had nowhere to go.

I watched them across the way
Piping, steaming, delicious andf hot,
Filling up with their take away's
Can't remember my meal, I forgot.

They passed me in their designer clothes
Credit cards fulfilled their dreams,
They were an evil looking lot I thought
With woman covered in diamonds and creams.

They never gave me a second look
I was just a sewer rat ravaging for my supper,
They were right in a way I suppose
I never even had a few pence for a hot cuppa.

Yes, as things stand now I'm a pitiful sight
That's why the thing that matter most to me,
As I write this tale of life and woe
Is to try to regain my health and be free.

Free of these hypocrites of society
Telling me I should get a job,
Without asking how I got in this mess
Well their the ones who want to shut their gob.

Their ignorance is just a joke
You see I was a soldier once,
I've got the battle scars to prove it
I'm not so clever, but I'm not a dunce.

The mental scars come flashing
As I sit on this damp floor of earth,
But don't ever tell me I'm worthless
Because I thank the Lord everyday for my birth.

The blood and the nightmares come flashing
For in WAR you either live or you die,
Coming to terms with it Mentally
That's another story of WHY?

But as I sit here in reflection
I don't want your sympathy just a warm bed
Not a lot for saving your lives
Perhaps you can save mine, by keeping me fed.

Happy Christmas!
