On any Sunday

When I got up, it sucked
I just felt just like a Zombie
So I walked to Starbucks
and I got a sweetened Grande

The people were crowding me
as I walked to the 7-11
I bought a pack of smokes
First one tastes like Heaven

I was chilling and sipping my coffee in the park
The homeless appeared, eyeing my cup
Fresh from the bridge where they slept at dark
I started to get up when one said "what's up"

"Well", I said, "I was thinking of going to town"
"You got an extra smoke", he said
God helped me as I passed them around
Memories of my own warm bed

I offered them some money for food
to eat something or to feed their dogs
He said "we all get enough dude"
Could I spring for a box of fire logs!

What was I to say to them to now?
I quickly handed over a Twenty
Walked away Scot free, unbound
I felt like life meant something that Sunday

    Yeah I've heard that giving is guaranteed to make you happy, for a while at least. Nice poem.

    I always wonder if those guys are on the up and up. Are they just scamming folks or not...I always want to kick myself for "helping" afterwards. My doc sent me for therapy and it seems to be helping. though it only last between treatments.
