#Poetry: The Fool…

Dancing fool in town today.

Stones they throw, to chase him out

A morsel of bread would take him far

On dancing legs, he would make his way.

Doors were slammed, no bread found he

Light fading to another day.

A child left out his daily slice

His dancing legs did stop

His tears the boy did see

Wondered why no one would give

The dancing fool a chance to live…
