I was about to leave the parking lot 
when a guy motions for me to roll my window down.
He's carrying a bucket and some papers.
It was broad daylight
and I am somewhat of a nice person,
so I stopped.
He tells me they are raising money to help people with addictions,
and could I spare a couple dollars to help do God's work?
I gave him what cash I had on hand,
which was only a few bucks.
He thanked me 
then handed me a paper
(to give to anybody I know w/ addictions)
and a blow-pop (cherry - of all flavors) from his bucket.
As I drove off,
I had to wonder if he was saying to himself,
"a sucker
for a sucker"...
