Existential Allegory #83

There once was a beggar,

blind from birth,

sat by the city’s gates

who would shout out,

from time to time:

Why are you looking at me?

then one day

a passerby stopped

on hearing the beggar’s cry

and asked

how do you know if someone is looking at you?

the sightless mendicant replied

I’m allowed to guess,aren’t I?
