The Begger - Poem by akingbehin daniel murphy

The Beggar & the Tourist
I saw an old man lying by the
side of the street starring into
oblivion
What a simple existence,
purposeless and futile my
opinion
He saw a young man busily
running around in futile pursuit
Only to fulfill what he was taught,
someone's ideal to suite
I see the existence of a beggar,
idle and senseless
He sees the life of a slave,
brainwashed and defenseless.
