“Self-Help” Housing

(An astonishing number of our charitable public institutions now exist pretty much just to keep existing)


I called all six
Of the landlords
On the list you gave me
I said

Three said
They have no
Low income housing

Two take only men

The last has a waiting list
Two years long

Would you like me
To give you that information
So you can update your files?
