Conversation Between Strangers By Jan McCartney

Excuse me, do you have any time?
No, I’m sorry, I’m in a hurry.
Could you listen but a minute?
No, I’ve got my own damn worry.
But, will you stop for just awhile?
I’m afraid that I’ll be late.
Well, you see, my life is on the line!
Well, that is your own fate!
Perhaps if I would pay you….
Look, I have to go.
…Would twenty dollars be enough??
Can’t you hear, man, I said no!
Please, just a second of your time…
Goodbye, nice meeting you.
I beg of you to help me out!!
And have a nice day, too!
