wispering
The Dime
wilowisp
Set out quickly on a simple trip
Crossed three paths on my way from
here
to
there
One playing the guitar
One wishing me Merry Christmas
One deaf man with his cardboard card
Dollar, dollar, do you have spare change?
And I had a meal today
I'm the guilty party
I made a buck today
I should give it away
And the deaf man points
God Bless
God Bless
Here's a dollar
God Bless
and I stumble away
Why did he get the dollar?
Why not the man with the guitar strings?
Why not the girl with the simple stare?
Why does it linger
on my simple trip from
here
to
there
I made a buck today
I should give three away
Cause I'll have a meal tomorrow
even if it's rice
It lingers because I could walk away
