Because They Care
Our old world, in general, is wounded.
Many people are feeling the pinch.
Millions are hungry and homeless
and the wealthy do not give an inch.
It wouldn't take much to improve things,
so if you have some time you can spare,
look around for an organisation
who are helping because they just care.
Some of the homeless are addicts,
there are prostitutes, criminals, pimps.
But you have not the right to condemn them
and this is no past-time for wimps.
Their needing results from poor judgment
but humans do that all the time.
Have you never erred after giving your word?
And since when is 'born needy' a crime?
Go, dirty your hands in soup kitchens,
or clean up some mess in the loo.
There is more to salvation than good deeds
but the outcome is all up to you.
What you do unto the least of these,
my brothers, you do it unto me.
