Homeless Hell


Amber A. Whitman

The elements are extreme.
The wind howls and the snow blows.
How can people be living on the streets?
They are in a homeless hell.

Lying and sleeping on vents for the warmth.
Frostbite taking grip on their fingers and toes.
One young girl carries twins in her womb.
Let this city make some room.

This will not go away and more people will come.
How many have to die, for one less tomb.
This is homeless hell.
