A NIGHT AT THE PARK

Grass green and wet from the evening dew He run his fingers through the blades and wonder blue

Under the lights of the night fall lamps People pass him bye and mumble that's a tramp

Cloths wet while stomach growl This poor soul is hungry right now

I picture the tears as they roll down his face He prays to God "how did I end up this way"

Next to the tennis court as he lay in the cold Know one gives a dam about him being old

All he owns is the cloths he bare My sleepless nights knowing that's my brother laying there.
