Dear Vagrants

Copyright @ Hattaavah 2017

I want you to know that I personally am sick of seeing you on every corner, begging and making no effort to better yourselves. I should not feel guilty that I have food and you don’t. I should not feel guilty that I have a home and you don’t. I should not feel guilty that I have warm, clean clothes and you don’t. But I do, I feel guilty and that makes me angry. It is not my business whatever your misfortune was. And whatever it was, I am sorry that happened to you. But it doesn’t give you the right to be lazy and expect everything to be handed to you on a golden platter. You are the ones refusing to utilize resources that I know are at your fingertips in this town. It is 100% your fault that you are where you are right now. It is your fault that you choose to throw away all your benefits at the beginning of every month on motel rooms and booze for you and your fellow transients. It is your fault you are dirty and stinky, I know you have access to showers and laundry facilities during your monthly visits to motels, but you don’t wash your clothes, you don’t even use the showers. There is nobody to blame but yourself for your lack of hygiene. It is your fault you get banned from those motels you go stay in because you choose to trash the room, including urinating and defecating everywhere in the room except the one place you’re suppose to, the toilet. You are disgusting. It is also your fault that you get banned from the local homeless shelters as you refuse to follow their rules. It is entirely your fault that you are on the street and nobody else’s. Take responsibility. And what’s more, I’m sick and tired of hearing about you scoping out people’s cars in parking lots, breaking into vehicles and houses, flipping cars off and screaming at them, jumping out in front of them, leaving your trash everywhere and terrorizing people who are waiting for a light to turn green by banging on their windows. Fuck you, leave them alone. You are the only one that can change things for yourself. So either get off your ass and make a change or get the fuck out of this town. We are done feeling sorry for you ignorant zombies.
