BEG, v. To ask for something with an earnestness proportioned to the belief that it will not be given.   Who is that, father?        A mendicant, child,  Haggard, morose, and unaffable - wild!  See how he glares through the bars of his cell!  With Citizen Mendicant all is not well.   Why did they put him there, father?            Because  Obeying hi. -Ambrose Bierce
