A Sad Thing - Poem by Francis Duggan

The praises of people with heaps of money i always feel reluctant to sing
Except the few who with their money some joy to poor people does bring
But sad to say compassionate and generous wealthy people are only in the few
On saying this i am not saying anything that is new
So many growing poorer for every new millionaire
And many of the wealthy for those doing it tough not even a thought have to spare
The gap keeps on growing in the social divide
And this is quite evident even in wealthy Nations Worldwide
Wealthy people who donate to those who work without profit on behalf of the poor i can only admire
And of singing their praises i for one never tire
But sad to say such people as ever are rare
In a World where there are millions of people for every billionaire
The gap between the wealthy and poor keeps on widening by the day
And this in itself seems a sad thing to say.
