The Sitar Man

the sitar man
strummed his sitar 
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,

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

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

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