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.
