civil rights

we all know about the gays and trans

these poor abused people

scattered about the land

however what we all forget

is people like the homeless man

he lost his wife and kids 

he just couldn't go on

he lost his job, then house, then car,

they turned him to the streets 

but he's in new york city,

and being homeless is illegal,

so he's in and out of jail 

collecting fines he cannot pay

and collecting a record,

so he'll never be able to.

These people need help,

and they need it now,

so lower your pride,

because helping them is allowed.
