Beggar
©2010 Mike Maimone/Mutts

Huddled up curbside, holding a brown sign. Hunger & shame - eyes hungry & shameful. Strugglin’ again you’re back in my bed. Your cardboard lips read, “will work for love.”
Stain my lips, magic marker kisses; everyone knows we’ve been through. I’m holding no bills but believe what you need to.
Beggar. Beggar. No sweat to me, small change, beggar.
(I lie)
I seen you downtown still, with your hand out. Hunger & shame, back lookin’ for change. Drawin’ a new sign, knew I would cruise by... reluctantly I’ll do my ‘good deed.’
With my switch in the off position, you act like there’s no light in town. I’m hiding my bills so come pat my pockets down.
Beggar. Beggar. No sweat to me, small change, beggar.
It’s all that I got (I lie)
