Howling of the Damned, the Homeless

The exquisite night sky provides no comfort for those living without a home. The cold, brutal rain wrecks havoc to those without shelter, pounding against their broken bodies.

The pollution, the heavy dark smog, suffocates those with no means to ward themselves. The constant hunger, churning the shrunk stomach. The constant thirst plagues the dry throats. The madness of the abundance of food in the nearby restaurants, driving those with no means to buy nourishment… beyond misery.


They possess no means, to embrace their right to food, drinking water, housing, health care and safety. Many do not have stable wages, earning far below than what the bourgeois would waste in an hour. They worry, constantly, how to defend themselves against society’s relentless stigma, prejudice and discrimination. The poison, sweet to the meat.

Welcome to the realm of the homeless, where befoulment tingles in the air.

Welcome to their agony, their helpless desperation to defend themselves against hunger.

Welcome to their hell, their home; your casual apathy drives them to despair.
