I saw a child living in squalor
so I gave her a dollar.
I saw a homeless woman, barely alive
so I gave her a five.
I met a poor old man whose health wasn’t good
I told him that I “understood”.
When evil fortune took people unawares,
I tried to repel it with my thoughts and prayers…
Then, I died… and the afterlife did not go so well:
They gave me back my six dollars and told me to go to Hell…
