the poor are on the streets,yearning and reelng with hunger
mouths wide open and hands stretched out like jesus ressurecting
gaping and eyes fixedly alert for a potential donor
cross-legged they are crouched like a stunted tree
they look up to the giant donors with begging eyes
stretching out the fragile trembling fingures
when te contemptous donor goes without slipping the smallest coin
on tin stick legs that support the pale emmaciated body wobble behind the donor
shambling off to meet and emphasise is plight for recognition
they never look back,but move on
the disappointed alms seeker revolves and walks back arms outstretched
and recoils himself into his business position and waits.
they discriminate,tey dont just stretch out 2 anybody but what they consinder donor material.
day in,day out they are at work.
night comes,tey recoil themselves into one piece and lay theirbones on the ground
cover themselves with sacks or nothing.what they hate most is rain.
