Welcome to our Sanctuary,

Hobos we are called.

It stands for Help Or Bugger Off,

When you dwell within our walls.

 

We offer food and shelter,

And other things you need.

We don’t do things for money,

We don’t do things for greed.

 

It doesn’t matter how you help,

You bring what you can.

Help make things better,

Help your fellow man.

 

Accompany the lonely,

Hear their woes and fears,

Hold their hand throughout the night,

Wipe away their tears.

 

Share some of your wisdom,

Teach the skills you know,

It doesn’t cost a penny,

To help someone to grow.
