The beggar sits on a cold dark street.
Tapping his shoe to the city beat.
Vegas showgirl, short skirt, blonde hair.
The nightclub - hypnotic black lair.

He strokes his tattered blanket - cloth.
Hidden in the shadows like a pale white moth.
His eyes are brown, sad with despair,
Society likes to hide the tear.

I really love this poem you've written here. So much power and meaning in just two stanzas.
