Homeless Puff (2018)

Lyrics by: Marcia Reaver original lyrics by Nora Freeman, NYC Metro
Gaggle: Rochester
Tune: Puff, the Magic Dragon

Puff the Magic Dragon no longer has a home,

Through the streets of Rochester he must sadly roam,

He lived in the subway tunnel ‘til developers bought the land

Moved to the courthouse garage but Maggie locked him out.


He tried the shelter system and fled all full of fright

This fire-breather felt more safe in a tent at night

Mayor Lovely Warren ordered his tent bulldozed

Spectrum wants him out now but where will he go?


Puff is but a fantasy but not so human beings

All need homes to live in just like you and me.

Not tent villages and shelters that just can’t meet their needs

For protection from the elements, safety and privacy.


No more gentrification we need a housing plan

Housing First for everyone on this we take our stand!
