Homeless guy I walk by every single day.
He seems so nice but people always turn away.
One day I stood with him and we talked for a while. He seemed so happy but he had sadness in his smile.
I shook his hand and he said "thank you very much. 'cause sometimes conversation's just as good as a donation."
I didn't understand until he looked at me and said"millions like me are freezing tonite, and no one cares if we live or die.
Change in my cup gives me a couple bucks to spend but I'd rather be treated like a person again. "
As I stood with him a business man walked up. A winning smile and threw a wad of gum into his cup.
I was so angry that I ran and chased him down.
I tapped him on the shoulder and he turned around.
I shook my head and said "youre a fucking dick" he turned pale and asked me what the fuck I meant.
He'll never understand but still I pointed back and said
"millions like him are freezing tonight and no one cares if they live or die.
Change in his cup gives him a couple bucks to spend but he'd rather be treated like a person again. "
