Homeless

Standard

​People ran hither and thither,

scurrying off towards their homes

like timid little squirrels

hiding

from the rest of the world

into their little homes

watching television

as news channels buzzed on.

Outside,

buses were being set ablaze,

wooden logs thrown over vehicles;

The homeless man sat watching

as everyone ran for their lives,

but knew not where to go.
