Helping People

Another poem about the dole people. Don’t get me wrong, the dole is a good thing, it’s just not enough on it’s own.


You look so pleased

In your smart suit

Helping people?

That’s what you say

But you ignore the truth

The pain in the eye

The butterflies that landed

In ink

Over the scars

You may try and help

But you just hide

The symptoms and

Mask the true problem

But say you help

If it helps you sleep

But occasionally notice

You are the perfume

Over the plague sores

Try helping the problem

Not the symptoms.


Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.
