    1. That's kind of a sad song……

    Kind of a “failed busker” story.

      2. Did you read about Joshua Bell busking

      NY subway a few years ago, and being ignored? This Leiermann has good company anyway.

      For you who dwell on many waters, rich in treasure, wide in fame, who bow unto your god of gold: your pride of might shall be your shame.

        3. America has no appreciation for buskers…..

        They are viewed as “panhandlers” even if they are really good performers.  Sad.
