falling in the cracks

What do you do when you’re down and out
In a system that safety nets lacks
When they can’t take care of everyone
And you end up falling in the cracks

The criteria for assistance is so hard
And yes the system by some is abused
But those of us who really need help
With the con-men often get confused

That is when we need help to get
The things we have rights to and deserve
For those who fall between the cracks
A simple life is all that we’re trying to preserve

So to the governments local, state, and national
I plead for help for those who cannot
Something needs to be done for those falling in the cracks
Before they are lost and forgot
