Charity Points

don’t want to give “back”

want to give

don’t want to catalogue goodness

gain points for self in service

want to give

don’t want to balance imaginary equations

maintain quid pro quo obligations

don’t need to complete the formula

of what self-righteous self–promoters

think is best

or get resume credit

by shoveling snow for neighbors

don’t want to do it

to extoll the virtues

of being blessed

don’t care to give “back”

as if a reason is needed

for basic goodness

don’t want to give because

want to give
