Walk on by ?


He sits there with his head bowed with shame,
people pass without knowing his name,
he's not ignorant he's so messed up
all he wants is a coin in his cup,
some think he's to blame, a "junkie" an "alki" o what a shame,
so they walk on by never looking back
he was one of them but he got the sack,
so remember good people
the same could happen to me or you
so the next time you see him
give him a bob or two.
