This Is Not About Fashion

People romanticise the rain
He wishes he could be one of those people
But he has no work if it rains
It has been raining a lot this autumn

He is already behind on rent and bills
Who would have thought that thieves would rob the down trodden
His flat has been ransacked empty
The Neighbourhood Centre gave him some non perishable food

Winter comes early this year
He needs a padded jacket to fend off the chilly mornings
He also needs underwears and socks
There is a dilemma in Kmart menswear
But given the priority of necessity
He is going commando
