Its coming near that time
When the cold will truly bite
The winds are howling around you
Your tucked up for the night.
Let's think of the many homeless
Struggling to get some heat
Scared of sleeping rough
Often they get beat.
There are some who are chancers
Who just want to make a quick “buck”
But there are also lots of genuine people
Who are down on their luck.
So if you can spare a sandwich
Or a blanket would be great
Or even spare some dog food
For their companion who probably ain't ate.
So spare some thought for someone else
In this Selfish unkind age
When all you read about these days
Is hatred, filled with rage.
When your sitting in your comfortable home
Just after a wholesome meal
Imagine how cold it is out there
And how the Homeless feel!
