 Hearths and Homes
Joe Harcz
March 10, 2000

 Desolate spirits roam lost in a wilderness.
Limping lonely languishing Nome's
Just trembling figures struggling to caress
The promise of hearths and homes.
Holding on to survival
Like starving dogs to bones.
Hoping for renewal and revival
Before the reaper hones
His sickle and strikes life's force
In cynical comical abandon,
Without lament or a trace of remorse.
Still struggling to carry on
Each shooting craps with destiny.
Holding on to shopping carts
Guarding park benches relentlessly.
Each braving disease, darkness and broken hearts
Lost somehow to America's dream
In the midst of so much affluence.
Viewed like parasites in the cream
Or savage human pestilence.
They are the faceless and the nameless
Fruits of broken promises
Called the nation's homeless.
And whether victimizer or victimized
There they are nonetheless.
Most taken to the streets before they realized
The insidious relentlessness
And capriciousness of fate
That separates us into haves and have nots
Even in a nation so great.
