I took a taxi fare today, 
Oh lord!
From a blind boy who could not see
And when I dropped him off 
I dared not scoff 
Because I am not
The reason the boy has never seen
Who only the benially ignorant 
Would choose to demean
A boy who lives above his means
Showing me in all my 40 years
This is the most insignificant
I have ever felt

    Christoper, 40 is a long way for some. I see how one can make you feel as if you have not seeing it all... especially coming from one with a view, that comes with no form. Sorry, a moment like that made you feel unworthy for a minute or two... always~pd
