Poem #10 – Rough

Studying the housing system in the UK has made me acutely aware of how unaffordable housing forces people onto the streets. Hearing about a number of homeless failing to make it through the cold in the last few weeks really hit home. So I wrote this little poem to help process it. 

quiet are the masses
as they lay peacefully in their bed
ignorant are the classes
as their people go unfed
no change as time passes
another rough sleeper dead

Be kind.
