Bag Lady

A sadder scene is seldom viewed
As a bag lady shuffling past you
But like many a wrinkled face
Lies a tale worthy in history place

Where once was Gucci or other gentry
Is plastic bags filled with mystery
A stylish walk once awash with pride
Now a laden limp she'd rather hide

An age of three score and twenty
Broken and faded dreams are plenty
The make up bag is long replaced
No cosmetics to cover her sorry face

When young and in full bloom
A look behind she always groomed
Now much older and slightly hunched
The heads still turn just as ...
