The Man on the Island
On my commute to school,
A man stands there between traffic.
i am so curious, what should I do?
Why does this image have to be so graphic?
Many people don't even see him,
some hand him dollar bills.
im getting closer, what should I do?
He seems to be having the chills.
His hair is quite long and his teeth almost all gone.
i don't even think he has an ounce of body fat.
I'm on my way to school, what should I do?
No one should have to live like that.
The man on the island was there the next day,
i invited him over to have some Farmer Boy's.
Peter was quite pleased with what I did for him,
I am glad that I made the right choice.
