A TENTS SITUATION by Scott F.
A TENTS SITUATION
by Scott F.
Looking out my window
a few days ago
a tent rising from my park
nothing worthy of remark
but soon like a flood
I knew complaints would come
the self appointed Saviours of the Stair
made it their job to interfere with who was there
and demand that the people move.
What a crime they considered it do be
for being there simply;
Poverty is fine as long as they don't have to see
You've discovered you're a NIMBY!
What a difference it seems to make
when it's genteel middle class
with a gazebo on the grass
compared with homeless with a tent to sleep
it causes you such distress
"999" you press
and urge the authorities to have them removed
and if they don't ask fast you threaten to sue
couldn't have stark reminders
'cluttering' up your view
No NO NO
that wouldn't do!-----
So if you're a busy-body neighbour
then do us all a favour,
and stop bothering
camping in the park!
