Am walking down this alley
Around the bend a fine man
Probably busy,I stare at him as he does his work
So much silence between us
“I want two” that is my order
He does it in such a hurry ,
Maybe he thinks i can leave before he serves me
Poor he…..struggling to make a cent
A wife to feed, rent to pay,children to take to school
I pity him…..
Why am I thinking of him anyway
Maybe am caring much….
Or probably judging from one angle….
Or maybe pretending…..
“Sir am done” I take my two boiled eggs
“How much” ….”40 coins”
I pay and leave in peace
Why should he be here till this late
Is the sacrifice worth the payment!!!!
But then I remember not every sacrifice in life pays…..
