Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Pocket Change
 
~~~
At a Donut shop before the dawn
a faceless vagrant
too
is drawn
He rifles through unwanted trash
his careless glance as I go past
~
A busy spot both day and night
drive through line a constant sight
Fresh donuts for the paying crowd
what's left...
attracts those not so proud
~
Once inside the busy shop
a fresh brewed coffee from simmering pot
Aroma savoured before the taste
Not one drop will go to waste
~
Relaxing
shaking the morning chill
when thunder and lightning break the still
Sheets of rain now drive him in
near dripping wet with a hapless grin
~
Can I help you Sir? The clerk’s hollow tone
then time stood silent...
with a heartless moan
This challenge answered through my reply
my nod...
I'd catch the bill and buy
~
He sat protracting every sip
watching rain beat at the door
I ordered one to go
and left
enough to pay for more
~~~
