Jake Has Nowhere To Go

 

By Elton Camp

 

When he was a bouncing baby boy

Jake was his parents’ pride and joy

 

Childhood was what it should be

Playful, happy and of worry free

 

He followed advice to stay in school

To avoid a life disappointing and cruel

 

Employment came as a matter of course

His life promised to be free of remorse

 

Marriage and children came along too

Jake’s fondest dreams all came true

 

How it all changed, he hardly knew

With happiness, Jake was through

 

His lifelong employer shut down

At his age, no job was to be found

 

His resentful wife abandoned Jake too

With him, his children were through

 

Homelessly living on the street

Jake was forced to accept defeat

 

He trudged into a dark downpour

And sadly never seen anymore
