The Beggars Lament


Spare some change Mr
You know Im down and out
Spare some change
You know I need it

Spare some change Mr
Im down on my luck
Spare some change

Well F**k you ya auld C**t
Spare some change Mrs

Spare me your change
I promise I, ll get steaming drunk
D ya think its my fault
Im down and out
D ya think its his fault
He chats up queers
D ya think its his fault
He drinks all those beers

If you think its our fault
Just remember this shout
F**k you ya auld C**t Im down but not out

    I like it!

    And at this time of year when the weepie ones are out
    I can hear your beggar shout!
    This is what the giving season is all about,
    A bit of beer for your drunken lout.
    Never mind that he's not like you and me
    Leaving something different neath the Christmas tree. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
