our backyards of poor souls

Image result for malaysian poor
borrowed from

Look in our backyards
There are the things we don’t see
The many NGOs go overseas
Donating food and stuff to the poor

Some will do the collections
The cause for Palestine and destitute
What happen to charity begin at home?
These NGOs have forgotten our poor

We have our urban poor and homeless
They are sitting right in the public view
We don’t see politicians making their rounds
We don’t see many NGOs help them

When newspapers highlight on these poor
The politicians will make an appearance
It is one off show then the poor are forgotten
Nothing is changed; it stays the same

The poor and homeless
They live day by day
Tomorrow they can’t say
Because they may be gone or police take them away
