Harriet James


Beware The Scam


Beware the scam my friends
Beware the scam
The one where you are
Asked 'support an orphanage'

Even through the medium
Of poetry beware the scam
There are ways and means these days
To ignite a sham

We have to learn to reap
Reap what we sow
Not expect handouts
From anyone although

Temptation prays at
Heaven's golden page
Beware the scam my friends
Hold still your gaze

    They keep sending me ads to get married, hello this is Francis Blessing. They all have the same last names. Nothing about an orphanage, yet. Good poem. (Report) Reply

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
