Welcome To The Blues

crying

Someone handed me a paper.
And I read the sad, sad news.
There’ll be more homeless folk.
Welcome to the blues.

I’ll tell you just what I was told.
“Never stay in one place long.”
And no matter what you do,
you will never again belong.

Here’s a shopping cart and a blanket.
And I’ll show you all the ropes.
We’ll dumpster dive for food.
And hope to find some winter coats.

A fire without warmth,
is a fire that burns so cold.
The flames of indifference,
have never warmed a soul.
