Peaceful Poverty

Peaceful Poverty
Form: Quatrains

Walking the streets of this city at night
Cast your eyes to the reality, the plight.
In dark corners, sleeping under boxes,
Lies and old man living wild like foxes.
Trapped in the terrifying honesty
Just left in the world with no amnesty.
His working life as someone's property
As we look on in peaceful poverty
