The Sitar Man


the sitar man
strummed his sitar 
and
begged for quarters,
while he played his songs.

Mother told me,
don't you mind him,
never feed him,
he'll be back for more.

i didn't tell her what i thought,
that feeding him would
feed his music,
and
blossom.

when i got my allowance
for walking the dog and doing dishes
sometimes,
i started put some away,
hidden.

one day i took a handful of change,
as we passed
the sitar man,
i fed him 50 cents,
and 
he played some beautiful notes.

Mother never saw it and
from then on,
i vowed to help all the
people,
sitting on the street,
because they all have music in them.
