The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Pompous Toronto Panhandlers
Pompous Toronto Panhandlers
Homeless, unwashed, unclean antagonistic itinerants,
Hobos, tramps, drifters, loud mouths in their litany rants,
Some streets and corners are now dangerous violent places,
Aggressive types claim rights and they do it right in our faces.
Our abhorrent left-wing goody-two-shoe tolerant politicians,
Seem to have missed the boat and cannot recognize these conditions,
Cannot pass a law that will send panhandlers straight to jail,
Because the Safe Streets Act seems flawed and allows panhandlers on bail.
And to hell with their logic and so called left wing common sense,
We are the people and we need safe streets and we’re not dense,
We need referendums and recall and not their hidden agenda,
Opinions moulded by talking heads and their media propaganda.
