Daily, putrid smell
Blocks my nostrils
Squalid beggars compete,
Rummaging the dustbins
In search of bread

Life under the bridge
A slow life
Laced with hunger
Amidst plenty

Our bed,
A bug-infested carton

Under the bridge
Under the cover of darkness
The rich seek love -
Love in dementia

They seek love to fulfill a rite
To indulge a mad mistress
to enhance bloody access to wealth

It is madness
Madness willfully accepted
Sanity, entangled indecency

Life under the bridge...
A pot-pourri.
