Word on the street

February 01 2024

A poignant poem, titled Aliens, on how people experiencing homelessness are so often made to feel other, or alien. By Jason Electricity

Aliens,
Strange beings living on the street.
Aliens,
Odd specimens passed by hasty feet.

Aliens,
weary forms searching for understanding.
Aliens,
Unknown entities treated with cold handling.

Aliens,
Confused, abused, society-denied.
Aliens,
Otherworldly species seeking safety to reside.

Aliens,
Planetary bodies wanting accepted rights.
Aliens,
Urban invaders authorities view as a blight.

Aliens,
Space warriors lost between two worlds where lives burn.
Aliens,
Vulnerable terrestrials, enduring hostility at every turn.

Aliens,
Sentient humanoids, hoping compassion arises earthbound.
Aliens,
Legitimate inhabitants’ ensnared reality on abandoned ground.

Aliens.
