John handed the rough sleeper a twenty pound note. In the past he would undoubtedly have shunned him but John had changed. He spotted two young lovers kissing and felt sick at heart. He had riches galore but would have given all his money to be in that young man's shoes.
John was divorced. Oh, he had a mistress for mechanical sex but hadn't experienced the magic of love. All his business deals now seemed so meaningless.
John entered a church and prayed for salvation, poorer than the rough sleeper.
