The man of no fixed abode was living in the abandoned warehouse the night it caught fire
But let’s call him Jerry because it’s harder to turn a blind eye to someone with a name
Harder to ignore the fact that a person died in flame. No doubt some of you will think Jerry is to blame
But let’s say he lost his job at the car factory because it’s harder to turn a blind eye to the economic truth
Harder to ignore the fact that this could happen to you
Shame that Jerry died alone.
