Social Justice Poetry

Another Winter in Chicago | A Social Justice Poem by Donal Mahoney

It’s just a flophouse
but it’s all he can afford
and now it’s come to this.

If he buys food
he can’t pay the rent
on his blanket and cot.

Winter has landed and
Butch will throw him out.
With no place to sleep

why bother with food.
Another winter in Chicago
to sleep on the street.
