Quotes of a Cynic #14

Me on the anti-homeless spikes being implemented in certain cities:

Why can’t we try,

When children cry,

For a parent who loves them more than dope,

and snorting coke.

How can we lie,

to the families of those who’ve died,

fighting a war they didn’t believe in.

You don’t know where a person came from, you don’t know if it’s their fault, so give them the benefit of the doubt, instead of pretending you’re devout. A homeless person could be a student, a parent, a veteran, or even you. People treat them like they aren’t people, and that’s sick. Sometimes life isn’t fair, so it’s rough when the people with the power to change that deny the issue.
