I was searching the net for a picture of tempting good food to accompany a poem about same, but this picture popped up. Now I don't know if it's a setup or for real but I am taking it as an actual snapped photo.

The picture evokes sadness in me more than another picture of a street person might. It is obvious that the man is at least computer educated and is there on the street obviously in need of food as his sign says, but also in need of other help. He will probably not get any of the help he needs other than food which he probably will get. He looks like he's been on the streets for a while, and the sad thing is he will more than likely remain on the streets until he comes to some ugly end. A wasted life for sure, a life that most of us don't know how to save.
