Giving Is Not About Wealth Money - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

giving is not about wealth money
even the rich may give to charity
point zero zero percent popularity

$10,000 dollars a plate
$100,000 dollars a plate
give at gala privilege date

company charity legal loop tax break
tax profit right off refund fiddle book snack
celebrity dinner smartest rogue rat pack

profiteers
need more money for accumulative wealth
corporation prepares

to slice your employment benefits health
live in mansions
palaces give Hati sympathy not money stealth

the very very poor
will die but not at your luxury door
mega rich miser hoards riches indifferently making more

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
A Little Night Music soothes savage heart
Miracle Artist gave us beautiful music died in poverty stage depart

the world gave Mozart a common begger's grave
his bones mass buried his music important legacy save
giving is difference making caring filling empty tummy slave
