Central Park Poet

I'm a poet
I'm not a bad man
They let me out every Tuesday
Where you from? California?
Everybody's got to come from somewhere
That's a poem
I got three poems here
A dollar a poem
So that's three dollars
But you can give me five if you want to

Can you help out a brother?

Where you from? California?
Everybody's got to come from somewhere
Next time, then
That's okay
You're still okay in my book, Pops
