Theme: Apathy

The Silent Beggar

He stood quietly by the door,
Every bit of clothing he possessed he wore
He was a pathetic sight
He brought human misery to light
His dark brown eyes said it all
There was no need for any begging call.

But we just pretended
That on us he had not descended
It was as if he did not exist
We passed him by ignoring his open fist
Have we become so terribly uncaring
That we can pass a poor man with such daring?
