A Man of Means

He was a person of interest. Some believed him a pest. His friends thought him a do-gooder, at best.

His family deemed him as one of those. Or so the story goes. He’d rather give than take. He had a firm handshake.

A good man he was with very few flaws.  So sad life dealt him a downward turn. The street life he had to learn.

Every day his guitar he would play. Perhaps, a few coins would come his way. His dog by his side. Together they cried.

Ah, our friend and his dog. They drew a crowd. Such deafening applause. He was a man with very few flaws.

The dynamic duo made the news. All while just singing the blues. His friends and family watched in awe. They were most amused.

Little did they know his songs were sung before they begun.

  1. I like the experimental format, and the last line touched deep. It is what we label as Destiny – songs being sung before they begun.

    Thanks for joining in week after week, Franci! Much appreciated!

    • Thanks. I wanted to try something a little different. I follow a writer on beBee that has a style similar to this. I feel the format is something I need to work on, but worth the effort. This piece didn’t quite meet my expectations but fun to do.

  2. I enjoyed this change of style Eugenia and always feel it is good to experiment. I think we can relate to this on many streets. The last line leave food for thought.
