On The Town's Poorer Side

So many Homeless and Stateless people in the Human World of today
And the gap between the wealthy and poor keeps on widening which seems sad to say
Few wish to know of those financially down
And so many sleeping out of doors in the poor side of the town
Every day to survive a new challenge to meet
For the homeless teenagers of Poverty Street
Where so many young people are homeless and unemployed
Life for so many tough on the town's poorer side
No hope for employment for those without a postal address
They know of hardship and homelessness and hunger and stress
In dire poverty and luck not on their side
In the suburb of many a teenage suicide
Where those who are employed are to say the least rare
In the suburb that does not have one millionaire.
