A Wise Giver - Poem by kelvin karani

Canto 2

I’ll tithe no more
To build exquisite churches
And fatten the piglets
That are our bishops.
Let their blessings be!

I’ll go into the village
And give food to the hungry
Clothes to the cloth-less
Visit the sick and imprisoned
For that was the command

I’ll be exploited no more
Allow people to fleece me
Using god as the bait
For god loves only
The cheerful not foolish giver

So I’ll give cheerfully
To those truly in need
I’ll join hands with them
Who seek to further our good
Not self seeking leeches

They can sit on their sits
Sing praises to themselves
But am not going to church
To seek recognition from them
God will recognize me!
