The Lower Turks Head

Homeless man

Wishes he were dead

 

Outside the pub

On an autumn night

 

Cold freezing wet floor

 

Hes hopin for more

 

Spare some change mr

 

As he holds out his cup

To the call centre worker

 

Yeah hes finished for the day

 

Works in the Arndale tower

Don’t glower its an iconic tower

Hes had a stressful day

Calls 24 hrs a day

 

He just wants a pint at the end of his shift

 

Cos hes a modern worker

Hes no shirker

hes a hard worker

 

looks at the homeless man

and thinks

 

how can this happen man

 

this poor man with his dog

is down on his luck

 

who gives a ****

 

so he puts his hand in his pocket

and hands him some change

 

god bless mr

 

as he looks at his blister

on his hand

 

he cant even stand

 

hes down on his luck

 

hes had hard luck

 

so the call centre worker

 

says its alright mate

 

and goes into the pub

orders a pint

and drinks into the night

 

he thinks

it could be me

or anyone

 

that’s on the street tonight

 

a homeless life

of trouble and strife

 

but hes got a life outside of work

 

a family house and home

 

hes thinkin of the long walk home

 

at the end of the night

on a Friday night

 

but its alright

 

co hes in

The Lower Turks Head

 

Homeless man

Wishes he were dead

 

Outside the pub

On an autumn night

 

Cold freezing wet floor

 

Hes hopin for more
