Foreclosure took away much more than bricks and boards.
Gone their home, their car -- they joined the homeless hordes.
They’d always paid their bills, were never ones to shirk.
Their bosses coldly say that now there is no work.

Gone their home, their car -- they joined the homeless hordes.
The till went bare and took their final ray of hope.
Their bosses coldly say that now there is no work.
The greedy, stone-faced lenders drained all strength to cope.

The till went bare and took their final ray of hope.
Then welcome mats just vanished in their neighborhood.
The greedy, stone-faced lenders drained all strength to cope.
Belovèd pets, unfed, left home in search of food.

Then welcome mats just vanished in their neighborhood.
And, on the block, a lifetime’s store of things they cherished.
Belovéd pets, unfed, left home in search of food.
At every gavel whack another treasure perished.
