Too young, much too young to sleep on the street.

Robbed of everything, they are now robbed of speech,

And hold felt-pen messages, neatly written, on cards

Cut from cardboard boxes, silent messages, as if

A new marketing technique has reached the homeless,

So that even begging must be presented such,

So you don’t interfere, or interface, or say that much.
