Haves and have not

The park was filled with people — packed full. Important businessmen sent their subordinates to eke out a private space, lay out blue tarps from daybreak and wait all day so their bosses could have a private party after the rain stopped that night.

The park was filled with people -- packed full, yet important businessmen sent their subordinates to eke out a private space, lay out blue tarps from daybreak and wait all day so their bosses could have a private party after the rain stopped that night.

And while they ate catered meals at tables in the park people walked by envious or wanting and all ignoring the homeless men in the dark corners who ate scraps alone.
