HE STOLE THE BEGGAR’S PIE

 HE STOLE THE BEGGAR’S PIE

On a rag’s day

He came on his college train

Suited like the scarecrow

In a clown’s shoe and stockings

Carrying cans sealed by his roommate

            In his college’s name.

Nooks and crannies they went

Marbles and glasses they knocked

(Places where beggars never dare)

“All for the poors’ cause” they said

But he knew, he begs for his poverty

He’s got only a day to beg, lawfully

The poor and the beggar’s got all the year.
