Treasure Island

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
