very true to life. I feel sad for them and yet hopeful too. A contradiction of feelings. Well done Jack.

Yes indeed. It's a cold job but at least it gives them a little money. It woulsn't be so Christmassy without them on the corner ringing their bells. God Bless, JB

That's a hoot, Jack. Still, I do feel sorry for anyone who's having trouble finding work. Funny haiku, my friend. Love, Carolyn

Witty yet realistic! A very creative write and everyone can relate to how bad the economy is, though this poem tickled me with the last line. Nice one Jack!
