Hungry for Food

Ayush SharmaApril 30, 2024

"Can you spare some change?" said a man in brown,
"I am hungry and have not eaten for days," he said with a frown.
"I can't get anything unless I pay."
"I have nothing but this blanket for me to lay."
But the guy had ignored the cry of the man.

The man had nothing except his blanket
until he found a fountain and drank it.
He thanked the people above and went
he was glad to have a fountain to drink.

But his stomach called for him to eat,
he would be happy even with the slightest meat.
He dreams of himself being richer,
but the only money he has is just a single quarter.
