Walking In The City


A child begging in a city street

hush! I recognize the heartbeat

nearing him I hear

rapid drumming, must be fear

he looks like somebody I once knew

my cherished son could it be you

stop! he looks up pleading

put away the paper I’m reading

bending low for better scrutiny

closer, closer still, god it’s me
