In the middle of a picture of industries gates
sat a man who just waits
Unemployed from his 30s onwards
looking for an opportunity
in this life of lunacy
photographed as a sign of the times
this life is full of grime and thought crimes
have we stolen a moment
is there any atonement?
for the man who now sits on a corner
from the established systems in place
who like to hide from the despair on his face.
