Lowly Beggar

The Lowly Beggar

 

A Lowly Beggar Walked along the Road Alone.

His Staff was Carved from a Bodhi Tree.

He carried Sacred Figs in his Knapsack.

He Stopped to Rest on the Roadside.

 

Hello Filthy Beggar! Stay away from Me.

I have no Mercy for the Poor.

You have no Excuse to Be Homeless.

Be Gone! Pander Elsewhere!

 

The Lowly Beggar Walked along the Road again.

His Spirit was not fazed by The Words of the Wealthy.

He carried Sacred Figs in his Knapsack.

He Stopped to Rest on the Roadside again.

 

You are a Pitiful Man!

We Have no use For Tramps in this Town.

You have no Excuse to be a Vagrant.

Be Gone! Pander Elsewhere!

 

The Lowly Beggar Walked along the Road again.

His Spirit was not fazed by The Words of the Politician.

He carried Sacred Figs in his Knapsack.

He Stopped to Rest on the Roadside again.

 

You are a Sinner!

God's Church has no Place for Dirty Drifters.

You have no Excuse to be Unsaved. Repent!

Be Gone! Pander Elsewhere!

 

The Lowly Beggar Walked along the Road again.

His Spirit was not fazed by The Words of the Preacher.

He carried Sacred Figs in his Knapsack.

He Stopped to Rest on the Roadside again.

 

The Beggar saw a Hungry Child.

He Opened his Knapsack, removed a Fig.

Here Child. Have Something to Eat.

The Eyes of the Child Focused on His Face.

 

The Child Accepted the Fig, ate it and was Reborn.

The Child Stood Up Tall with Energy and Light.

The Child Hugged the Beggar for Saving his Life.

The Child asked Can I Be a Lowly Beggar?

 

The Lowly Beggar Walked along the Road again.

His Spirit was not fazed by The Inquiry of the Child.

He carried Sacred Figs in his Knapsack.

He Stopped to Rest on the Roadside again.

 

And The Child, Filled with Enlightenment, sat Next to Him.
