Monday 7:45 am

Meeting on the 70th floor
Briefcase in my hand
Jumped short across a puddle
Coffee left my hand

Splashed across the pavement
Stopped against a man
Soaked down to his body
An old torn sleeping bag

He looked at me and chuckled
He offered me a hand

I tried to say I'm sorry
He looked at me and said

This coat was in a window
I purchased it brand new
I now can't even remember
If it's black or blue

One look at you reminds me
That I was once like you

I used to be a provider
I used to provide for two
December, early winter
A great big deal fell through

Not very long thereafter
All bills were overdue
The bank sent us reminders
By then we two were through

I know you're in a hurry
Important things to do
This early winter morning
Go on. Go see it through
...................................................................................
This Holiday Season be kind to those in need,
you never know when you'll need a hand.
