Can You Spare 20p For A Cup Of Tea

Can you spare 20p for a cup of tea?
your change wont change what they think of me
can you tear that nescient poster down
that assumes I beg for rocks and brown
before you blame the fruit on the ground
take a look at the tree we fell from

the poor didn’t create inequality
and the poor didn’t create my poverty
you could easily be sat here like me
So can you spare 20p for a cup of tea?
