Pity and Purge

slapdashmonuments

Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?


It's largely a shame

That the ones who have what is needed

Just don't like to share.

-

Those who have the needs, on the other hand,

Cannot receive, though they often,

Out of compassion, do give what they can.

-

There is no shame to be found

Nor no pity either

When you get to the higher levels

-

So at least we can say

The poor are richer in spirit

In compassion in love and human quality

They love human equality

-

Together perhaps

We the poor might be

Equal to them

-

Do the math

Tread the path

The swamp is overflowing

The taint is corroding flint and blood

-

I think it's time for cleaning

-

What are you worried about,

Dung Treacle?

It's a minor revision

-

one tenth of one percent

-

and we will never miss you
