A BEGGER, A THIEF

 He wanders the streets, a taste for food, 
 A thirst for drink,

 Cold to the bones, waiting for a warm place 
 To sleep.

 Asking for that which comforts his pain,

 Pride and self respect are put aside.

 A human being, a man with a story,

 A begger today without any glory.

 Taking what he wants, no morals or remorse,

 Criminal thought's, a good man not.

 Working for nothing, he does not care,

 He steals anything, he has no heart.

 A thief many times over, a quitter of sorts,

 A begger, a thief, so many differences of course.

               Keith Garrett
