Extracts from this document...


The tramp It was a cold, winter night and the snow was covering the skyline like a crisp, white blanket. People were hurrying to do their last minute Christmas shopping as they flocked to the shops like ants on some honey. All of them had their big, warm coats on soft, woolly hats. I however was not like them. I didn't have any family to buy presents for. I didn't have any money to but them full stop!
