Waiting …

Currently on holiday in the Côte d’Azur, I am acutely aware of the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’

 

Don’t walk past me today,
Ignorance is bliss they say;
You’ve passed me before –
I’m still here … waiting.

I dream of a meal
On a china plate,
A knife and fork:
A real meal-deal.

Don’t despise
With middle-class eyes
My blatant begging bowl,
I’ll wait as long as I must.

Don’t walk past me today,
Take pity on my mute ballet.
Tomorrow is another day,
I’ll still be here … waiting.

Matthew 25:35-40
I was hungry and you gave me food
I was thirsty and you gave me drink
