I see the youth, sitting on the street

Begging for money, for something to eat

With empty tummies, how hard can it be

When, there are so many living in poverty


A woman in despair, goes to a shelter

With all her children, she is seeking beds

No materials, no possessions, has been evicted

With hopes that her family, gets fed


A man is destitute, he’s living on the street

He can’t get up, to get the help he needs

A lonely, withdrawn, a helpless human being

Yes, he’s a person living in real poverty


They call some feeding places, soup kitchen

With sandwiches, it makes a full meal

Some macaroni dinners, some wieners & beans

These luxury meals, will keep you filled


A lot of people go to their local food banks

Their pride has taken a really big blow

They need help to put food on their tables

Our family income, is at an all-time low


Lots of people, are drinking powder milk

And the “Drop-ins” are a really big deal

They clothe & feed you, basic needs & shelter

Yes, people, poverty is oh so very real


Some people have filed for bankruptcy

And they are really down on their luck

Believe me, no more middle class citizen

Yeah, being in poverty, really does suck
