Word of the Day: Dismal

His world was black clouds, no sunshine

He stayed away from all that’s fine

Cooped up on his cardboard lair

Underneath the corporate stair

Move along they said, no sleeping here

Not realizing moving caused him fear

Most suits would give a pass

Some would stop to fill his glass

His homelessness served offense

Some understood, some stayed dense

I think this problem will increase

Government continues to fleece

Using funds to build a wall

Separating “us” from all

Persons who are in desperate need

With innocent children to feed

This future not only dismal

This lack of love is abysmal.
