His Life On A Trolley.

18 Mar

18 homeless

This is the last of my scribbles from London. It was a bitterly cold evening and as we were waiting at Paddington train station to come home, I saw this homeless man sitting in front of us, his life packed onto a supermarket trolley, including a walking stick. One of his legs was in plaster and he wore a comedy fake-fur tiger hat. He was a nice man, chatting companiably to people nearby, sometimes dozing and thankfully he wasn’t hassled to move on by station personnel. I don’t know what his story is, but no doubt our present government would say it’s his own fault for being poor.
