    Homeless Shelter
    A Poem By
    By Christopher Osgood
    1/26/2008

    Concrete and steel surround the inner sanctum
    Flies, rats, maggots…
    A cardboard shelter is the only thing between
    Death and breath
    To breathe
    To eat your last meal of
    Raw meat……
    A rat sniffing for your last breath
    Out of misery
    Out of site
    The vapor lingers and rises from
    A toe tag that names yet another
    John Doe……
    Congratulations!
    You finally have a name…..
    You have been reborn….
    Into a Society that smiles down on you
    Under six feet of gratitude

      You mean homeless shelters aren't mansions? JK
    I like your unflinching attitude towards realities of life for many Americans. Homeless in other countries ase a little better supported, as I understand it. They have a community of like people who actually help each other out. It's part of their culture.
    But you never hear about this in the States (unless it's PBS).
    Phil Collins sang another day for you and me in Paradise (a home).
    Difficult subject matter that you did well in describing.
