Giving Alms In Bangkok - Poem by Brian Taylor

When the rich give alms they give of their richesse.
The poor give of their insufficiency.

The rich donate the merit to their egoic mind.
The poor share merit with relatives, living and dead.

The egoic mind waxes gross and ostentatious.
The poor conceal the little that they have.
