While on the topic of Hoboes...

Today at the local pharmacy I happened upon a Hallmark card directed to members of the Hobo Community; it read as follows:

I marvel at your stains
Your panhandling is devine
That stogie on a toothpick--
I'd smoke it anytime

Now that is beautiful.

The verse was accompanied with a cute lil' transient cartoon character holding a bindlestick and the abovementioned stubby and pierced cigar. Since it was created by our friends at Hallmark they did not include wavering stinklines or a smattering of cartoon flies on or about his person...which I think was a nice touch.
