Grant Guy

he said  do you need a dollar

corner of broadway & memorial boulevard
stood a panhandler on the median
he had a cardboard sign in his hands
anything would help    god bless

as my pickup truck   (yes i drive a pickup)
came to a stop for the red light
the panhandler stepped toward me

i indicated i had no change

he came to my rolled down window
seeing me is just enough he sd

i sd i only had a quarter

he put a hand into his left pocket
he said    do you need a dollar

i gave him my only 25 cents

i wish he had given me that dollar
