Feed me, a child starving during last bell,

Give healthcare, no dirty water in the well.

For a coin, a donation receipt dealt.

I’ll help my family, the week will be swell.

Cloth me; I need not Prada, pearls from shells,

I’m suffering in an earthly hell.

So, do as God says, give to those who’ve less —

While you too flourish, and pamper yourselves.

There are parts of the earth — they’re called third-world,

Where baby’s stomach’s bloat, so malnourished.

Where disease’s rampant, and poverty’s a curse —

It’s not their fault, so halt your insults hurled.

Improve their lives; buy pencils, books for school.

Let no child ride the metaphorical Hearse.

      Thank you JR. I had to think on this one but they are one of my favourite charities/causes for children’s and women’s improved lives; aid during terrible disasters, and of course, Operation Christmas Child. You’re right they’re a wonderful charity 🙂
      Cheers! I’m looking forward to ordering your new book soon!

        Of course! I’m so thrilled to read it and to own a copy. I’m buying a couple for my besties with little guys too. One’s for the future, one’s for now. Austy’s 4 and I think would love it. Logan’s 6 months, but my friend reads to him anyways 🙂
