The long collection speech is done
And now the felt hat goes
From hand to hand its solemn way
Among the restless rows.
In purse and pocket, fingers feel
And count the coins by touch.
Minds ponder what they can afford
And hesitate—how much?
In that brief, jostled moment when
The battered hat arrives
Try, brother, to remember that
Some men put in their lives.
