Expecting Inspiration

Watching cars and people
something I do a lot.
Sitting near the alley
trying to bum a smoke.
Those rich folks
walking by
the stories they must have.
Like I don't have one
as if I was just a still life.

A smile from one
that makes my day
and a dollar or two
even more.
I'm not looking for a hand out
I don't need you to survive
I'm not asking for a donation
I'm just looking for to be inspired.

Don't need a girl friend
or a hit off the stem
I don't need a street preacher's tears.
I need something I can make art of
some sculpture
but then again no.

Making waves on down the street
those folks are not my style.
I won't beg you for no hand outs
but I'd like it if you'd...
give me a smile.

Well stay dry and hope our friends Shaun and Jerry from down at the camp find Little Stevie, everyone's favorite Jack Russell pup.
Not sure if you've head, but Stevie has been missing two days now, Shaun is distraught and I can't blame him.
First Dan Barfield had Peyo pass away Kat month, 9 years old, then Stevie's missing...
Seems a rough stretch for dogs if the famous and not so rich this season.
😥
Sadness...…

I loved little Peyo….!!

This has to be one of the top ten most outrageously ignorant statements you’ve made on aapc.

Is it your choice will, to be homeless?

Expecting Inspiration
Watching cars and people
something I do a lot.
Sitting near the alley
trying to bum a smoke.
Those rich folks
walking by
the stories they must have.
Like I don't have one
as if I was just a still life.
A smile from one
that makes my day
and a dollar or two
even more.
I'm not looking for a hand out
I don't need you to survive
I'm not asking for a donation
I'm just looking for to be inspired.
Don't need a girl friend
or a hit off the stem
I don't need a street preacher's tears.
I need something I can make art of
some sculpture
but then again no.
Making waves on down the street
those folks are not my style.
I won't beg you for no hand outs
but I'd like it if you'd...
give me a smile.

Many homeless people are somewhat self sufficient and do prefer their freedom.

I consider this your best poem, Zod.

A shame that Pendragon probably doesn't get it.
