Have you ever looked into an old man’s eyes as he ****** himself in his broken wheelchair, quivering from the cold under a shop canopy and all you have to offer him is some carrot soup?
That sheepish smile is the worst, when it’s time to leave. You’ve given him an old beanie, maybe a cup of coffee with no sugar. What do you say? See you soon? Have a nice evening? You’re disabled and sleeping in your own ***** tonight.
Perhaps you've heard the ramblings of a mentally-ill stranger shouting loud nothings at passers-by; incoherent, confused; He's emaciated, with an empty coffee cup in his withered hands carrying but a single 2 pence piece to his estate.
Some of these chaps even leave their sandwiches to go rotten. See, if it’s rotten, you’ll get sick, and then you can’t be ignored because your ***** is making the pavement stink.
That mentally ill fellow, he sits outside Tesco’s every night, sitting up against a lamppost laden with stickers: “Smash the Patriarchy”; “No country for white men”.
The Women’s March goes straight past his sleeping bag; this example of human detritus means nothing to them but for the smell it produces and the rats it attracts; I imagine it'd put me off my macchiato too.
Maybe you deserve it; your eyes are blue and your skin is white; GUILTY AS CHARGED in London Town. You're out there in winter-time at 02:06 and I don't know if we'll meet again.
