Tune: Spoken to the beat of a tambourine

Think it’s a state of bliss?
We’ve got news – news for you:
It ain’t no gas to freeze your ass!
Oh sure – blame the poor.
Victimhood ain’t no good
But empowerment can make a dent.
Homelessness spells hopelessness.
We all need a safe warm place
Where alienation is displaced.
We don’t want more shelters – or food banks.
Let’s cut the numbers in the homeless ranks.
Homelessness is a disgrace.
For this city of ours to face.
So government help us out.
Let children have – a stable place.
Everyone’s happier, without a doubt.
