Bag Ladies Don’t Beg

Bag Ladies Don’t Beg

Their hands only out when

they are fiddling with their bags

They don’t beg

Their prides in that bag

All that’s left of a life that used to be

Being drug up and down the dirty streets

They don’t beg

Bag Ladies don’t beg

Their hands only seen when

reaching for something to eat off the streets

They don’t beg

Where is the family that used your name

One can see by the impression

there used to be a ring

They don’t beg

Bag Ladies don’t beg

What happened along the way

that makes a park bench where

a Bag Lady stay

They Don’t Beg
