Panhandling

by J.A. Tyler

And yesterday a suit walking slink-backed and slick nearly doubled himself over guffawing at the ignorance rampant on those streets. Right in his face - laughing. Glossy black sunglasses unforgiving too in their reflection of his declining figure. But the next woman by a mother of two or three sighed and collected her hands in her purse and came out with a tenner that she dropped with a look that said you poor dear or something to that effect. That was a good day. Best of both worlds, ups and downs.
