Everywhere

Never presume,
The lonely are everywhere;
Huddled in the corner
Of a pub drinking beer,
Cutting up a line of cocaine
In the toilet of a club,
everywhere01_400Waiting at a station to
Catch a train,
A refugee sitting
On the side of the road
In despair,
A child getting
Beaten up at school,
The old woman buying
Cat food with her
Last dollar coin.

The doorbell rings,
The pizza boy has arrived,
The bottle of scotch is open,
All the lights are on,
The music is loud,
The television glares brightly.

You walk to the bathroom
And wash your hands and
Catch a glimpse of your
Own face in the mirror;
Never presume,
The lonely are everywhere.
