the walker... walking man

it is interesting...
well... at least it is interesting to me
or perhaps not interesting but curious
yes... I am curious

this man... this walking man

why is he walking?
how far is he walking?
where is he walking?

how long has the man been the walking man?

years ago I would see this man... same walk... similar garb... slightly different hair
there was a period of time when his hair was long
but instead of being long and combed
his hair was long and dreaded
dreaded into one large beehive shaped dread

there has to be a story here
what is the story?

does anyone know the story?
do you know the story?

perhaps I should have stopped and asked
maybe next time I will stop and ask
