Today I took a wandering

Through skyscrapers most tall

And found life in the alleys.

There were the worker ants

Bustling off to work.

Bus and lorry drivers

Honking at their passing

There were the pedestrians

Heading home

Hot coffees encased in foam

Exercisers side stepped slower going folk

School children escorting

Younger siblings for the school day

Families with prams and dogs

Entered into the fray.

All of this seems chaos

But they all knew what to do.

It was the group of homeless

That tore my heart in two.
