Infant on the sidewalk-2

Infant on the sidewalk

This  metropolis
Mega  mother to many 
Her big breasts for the suckling for some

And  her kindly crumbs
for the picking for a few
I am new  and without the least clue

Like the infant lying on outstretched legs
Staring big at the high heavens
From  lap of mom sit to beg
On  the sidewalk.
