Title: Beggars and Schmoozers

"It's clear I'm down upon my luck,"
said the man with the wooden leg,
"which is why five days in every week
I raise my cup to beg."

"My coat has seen much better days
and my shoes much worse for wear,
but Oh dear friend 'tis such reward
to see how much you care."

"And every penny that you gift
each coin that comes my way
will help to feed my little flock
and keep the wolf at bay."

"Thus rain or shine I'll serve you well,
your conscience I shall be,
so drop your silver in my cup
and I'll raise a glass to thee."

"Then at closing time I'll take me home
to well earned luxury;
for the truth my friend, though safely hid;
is I'm as rich, as rich can be!"
