The Donkey Downstairs

Each morning, Donkey brings the wagon and it's set up under my window, he is hitched to a light post on a small road divider without water or shelter from the hot sun and no food. The Egyptians don't feel the need to treat animals well, they don't realize these animals are their transportation and the means of their livelyhood. I see this all over Cairo not just under my window. I hear this donkey baying HEE HAW HEE HAW I wonder what he is saying?
It's so funny to be inside traffic in the middle of the largest city in the Mid East and still see people with donkey carts and herds of sheep getting thru the crowded car infested streets. I call it the old with the new. YET ! IT WORKS.........
