modern slavery

say hello to depravity
to shit flowing in the streets

girls as young as nine walking these streets
modern slavery right before our eyes
nothing will change
it takes a war in this country for that to happen

tent cities under the overpasses, selling dead
flowers in the middle of an intersection

some keep their windows up and doors locked
but when i have the money, i’ll hand the guy a
twenty and tell him to spend it all on booze

too many homeless die with the needle
still in the arm

at least the bottle should get them through
the night and maybe make a friend along
the way
