The Bean Eaters

The Bean Eaters

by Gwendolyn Brooks

The Bean Eaters Summary

Two old folks sit at their dinner table, eating a rather unappetizing (but oh-so-cheap) meal of…beans. Yup. As they sit there, they look around the room, noticing the clutter of items that played important roles in their past.

Short and sweet? Well, yes. Yes it is.
