Apostle Paul…

these homeless guys got nothin’ to lose…,Apostle Paul said, they just slit your throat and jump on the next train outta here…,lit a Bugler, I know these guys…they don’t care…as long as they get their next fix is all they want…they’ll rob ya’…mug ya’…kill ya’…it don’t matter to ’em…a fix is a fix and they gotta have it and that is that…,took a long drag…

had this little business open at the shelter…sellin’ loosies for a buck…you know how many times they tried to steal from me…this whole myth ’bout the homeless lookin’ out for one another is just that…a myth…,took a swig from a brown paper bag…,they all got addictions…every last one of ’em…guess we all do…some kinda demons…nothin’ you can do ’bout it…,tilted his head back and ran his fingers through his beard…

I’ll get it right one of these days…,he said, One of these days…gettin’ too old for this…these streets are hard…big city…small town…streets are streets…and all that junk is just runnin’ wild right now…everybody’s doin’ it…shootin’ it…snortin’…smokin’ it…whatever they gotta do…glad I ain’t on it…glad I ain’t on it…

gotta ‘nough problems as it is…gotta ‘nough damn problems as it is…
