Little Beggars

Little beggars

Begging alms to live

Begging people to give

Just a huge token

5 Praying from the heart indeptly

For the freely givers

Even the empty givers.


Some blessed the child

Others chose to chide

10 In the sun, a little child

In the shade her mother hide

Also praying that her child’s pray

Doesn’t end up as a child’s play

Prayed she doesn’t fall prey

15 Even as she beg all day.


A little child

A victim of a little rape

By heartless old

Took advantage and her flower

20 Away

What do you think?

The mother would say
