Men With Brooms

Security guards armed with brooms
Sweep each and every park bench clean
Of unsightly human refuse
And the garbage littering the street

“No Loitering Allowed!”

Shoes without soles, shuffling shabby feet,
Forced to move on down the road
And the soulless demand bigger brooms

You know, it’s sad when a mangy stray mutt
Is afforded more dignity and compassion
Than a human being fallen on hard times
