My big Issue

                                My big Issue   {modified}

Their numbers are legion throughout every town and city in the land 
they stand on street coroners with eyes plead.

Others are more forward in their approach.
Their body language demands that you reach into your pocket and buy this months issue
just to reinforce the message a copy is thrust in your direction

Their plight is desperate it has to be said
but there are those of us who although not homeless 
have pockets almost as empty
and who have no other option other but to say no thanks.

There is no satisfaction in refusal

Sympathy wanes however when time after time
sullen looks betray the have a nice day slogan

This then is my big issue.

Being made to seem unfeeling and uncaring, and through no fault of mine, made to feel guilty at having to say no thank you.
