An excecutioner without drugs

in a nationwide shortage
Will still embark on their duty
to carry out justice
A heartbreaker with
unfulfilled childhood needs
Will always embark on her desire
to satiate her demands of herself
A worker unemployed
cant help but do something 
even if it destructs
whatever they were working for
A hunter without a gun
Drunks with no gin
Bankers who can’t gain
Drywall hangers without a building
Painters with no vision
A poet forgotten
Unknown to this city
I will find a way to survive
another night alone 
without a home
