Basic human need of shelter.
‘Tis an emergency riptide
Allow caring NGOs to provide
Essential services, sanitation, water, food
Stimulus package include.
Like makeshift hospitals, shelters makeshift,
Or else, sky’s the roof
Corpses on the streets.
In Covid’s roving eye of the storm
No fair weather anywhere
For the wrecked, marooned – welfare
Take an opportune lesson,
A learning curve,
Least they deserve
Eradication of homelessness.
