The Rich Beggar

Rating: 4.8
He was rich in the morning
He swam too far in wealth for any man to reach
He was too far to hear the Poor’s mourning
Too busy to save a life with the offer of a fish

No poor moved closer to his shadow
Like sparrows escaping arrows, they fled from him
Hearing his voice would only add to their sorrow
Even the voice he was freely given, was used to chastise them
He was richer than kings in the afternoon

This is a touching work...I enjoyed the read and the message...Yes each man must remember to be kind on the way up...So that he has some one on the way down... For life is unpredictable despite our best efforts...
