Beggars Hall


A shameless man knows how to beg.
But inside rages a fire.

Tatters and rags are his attire
as he begs for better and new clothes.
And he knows how to.
The most beautiful garments he gets.
But inside rages a fire
that scorches the richest of garments.
Tatters and rags are the attire of a beggar.

An empty hand
stretched out in need is his trademark
as he begs for help.
And he knows how to.
Everything a man requires is put into his hands.
But inside rages a fire that consumes everything.
An empty hand
stretched out in need is the trademark of a beggar.

Full of loneliness and neglect is his story
as he begs for love.
And he knows how to.
Loving and caring hands appear.
But inside rages a fire
that burns every hand that reaches out to him.
Full of loneliness and neglect is the story of a beggar.

It is better to die than to beg.
