Tell me your story
Man on the corner
So relaxed and on ease
Not a penny to your name
Yet no penny taken out of sympathy
Disposed upon you by civilians.
I want to know how you got this way
With skin aged from the fiery sun
And eyes worn from wisdom.
What did they see?
Did they see life flash in front of them?
Or a war between worlds?
I’ve only seen you once
While you contentedly smoked your cigarette
But I’ve heard what people know of you.
Tell me your story.
