This work has reached the exceptional level
Life is short
"Brevity" by Lordinajamjar

Breathless poets laud the beauty of a fall leaf,

Yet lose sight of falling tears where the homeless weep.

Without doubt nature's gifts are wondrous, tho' so brief,

Like the lives of forgotten souls we failed to keep.

Author Notes
Rhyme scheme - ABAB
Syllabic count - 12 syllables per line

The plight of the homeless is shameful blot on our society. It is an ongoing tragedy to which most have turned a blind eye. This is a problem that can be, and must be, solved. With goodwill and generous support from civic funding we could solve this problem literally overnight.

The following well known phrase says it best:

"There, but for the grace of God, go I."
