​Please Don’t Beg

Don’t beg in my neighborhood, 
I’d rather you seek a job.

Begging is not something I would

because the economy it does rob.
Don’t beg on my street, my brother.

I don’t care for such vile deceit.

I care not about your false hunger.

Just get back on your strong feet!
Don’t just beg in front of me.

Take off those pointless shades.

I know that you can actually see.

But you watch as your youth fades.
Please ask me not for food.

I’d rather employ you today.

Begging is never that good.

Such men in history won’t stay.
