Summary

The homeless are growing rapidly.Due to economics, job loss,Mental and physical disabilities.People, if we cant give them money.At least give them a cardboard box with a blanket or two in it.

Cardboard Box

I want to cry when I see him

picking through the garbage bins

Glad when he finds a piece of clothes

joyful for aluminum cans

He stands in line for hours

just to get a decent meal

Then he returns to his cardboard box

when he`s got his fill

Safe within his cardboard box

a blanket and a prayer

He dreams a dream to be anywhere

Anywhere but there
