Beggar and the pup



On a cold winter night
when everybody kept out of sight.
Retreating to the warm fire-place
Rubbing their hands and face.

A beggar on the street
with only a puppy to greet.
sat with expected glances
and belly doing a thousand dances.

A loaf is all they get
two pairs of hungry eyes met.
The beggar tore into two
and happily they chew.
