It's Not Much But It Makes Me Feel Better.... [Humanitarian contributions; Personal; Very Short] Poem by Bri Edwards


Come tomorrow I may spend a grand.
Sitting, writing checks, I'll make my "stand"....
against AIDS and poverty,
and inequality,
and loss of Nature.
I lend a hand.

    Sounds like you have too much coin Mr Bri. Donations to charity are all very well, provided that they actually use your money for what they should be doing. Too much is lost on admin costs etc. I'd rather help the people out myself (Report) Reply
