bless 'em beggars,buskers,street vendors

bless 'em beggars,buskers,street vendors
breastfeeding mothers,fathers weather-
beaten,misplaced babies,outofschoolboys&girls
inhaling with hard-acquired fidelity
the everyday japanese/german carfume
for the sake of jakarta blue sky

(are these by-products of national antigress
on the brims of sanity&civility
not wearing thin our soles of mercy?)
with a pair of
nike shoes

mayhaps they'd beautifully stoop
like twilighting sunflowers
and being (seemingly)feline ingrates stop
(&so that in their position we could put
ourselves better indeed)
