There's A Rainbow 'Round My Shoulder!

Beggar
with great gusto
despite the snow
giving it all he’s got
sings at the top of his voice.
I’ve only got one suit...one suit...that’s all I can wear!

Al Jolson
smiles down from Heaven
singing along.
My feet trip down the street
happier for encountering

his singing begging.
“I’ve only got one tenner...one tenner...that’s all...I swear!
I give it to him
poorer in pocket...richer in song.
