Don’t Kick The Downtrodden

It bothers me immensely when I see

those who are struggling, genuinely,

getting kicked around

when they’re already down

Don’t kick the downtrodden,

show a little compassion

is it too much to ask now?

1953

A jukebox in a malt shop,

playing a sweet melody,

filled an old man’s memories

as he thought back nostalgically

the year in mind was 1953

Flashback-

Two hearts were beating, nervously

young love was blooming beautifully,

and the future was a mystery

All these years on,

though his Love is long gone

He still smiles & tells their story,

says “she was the one”
