Poem by Doreena Jennings
The Capuchin Day Centre
It’s Wednesday morning
and the queue on Bow Street
gets longer year on year - a family
with two children wait in line
for the blue bag from brother Kevin.
Bread, butter, beans and more - their home,
a hotel room, two bus rides away.
Yet somehow this place, is just enough
to put a half smile back on a mothers face,
on these dirty Dublin streets.
