A down and out smelly bum sits in a door frame
As people walk by him saying he is the one to blame
For the horrid stench filling the air
No one giving him attention or care

A young man named Keith wonders by
Deciding to give the subway a try
The bum stumbles in the same direction
Onto the platform they are under detection

The other soon to be passengers watch the bum
All thinking different ways of calling him scum
No one says a word as they all stare
All but Kieth who pays the mans fare

The bum do to his over intoxication
Fell onto the tracks knocked out by inebriation
These future passengers just take out phones
Making videos and taking pictures to send to homes

Kieth hesitates a moment before jumping down
Now hearing the trains metallic sound
Trying to lift the bum up and out
Asking for anyone to help with a shout

All the others thoughts begin to roll
“why Is he helping that homeless troll
He could be killed Why is he risking it all”
All staring no one answers his call

The bum snores as the trains lights can be seen
Lifting up the bum he places him out of danger’s scene
Though Kieth begins to turn and try to run
Since the train slows to stop at platform one

The train closes in and his heart races
As he has no more higher paces
A few screams from out of the crowd
As the train whistle rings out loud

Kieth’s head lands on the platform
Is body forever in pieces and torn
Doing the right thing has its price
Living in a world where no one is nice
