When all the ills that afflict mankind are removed I will be happy to support the animal welfare charities. 




The Donkey Saver


She was young, pretty and full of zeal

but ‘save the donkeys’ was her appeal,

I asked did she think that I was a fool,

cancer, famine and war are also cruel,

and my first care is how well we live

so to her donkeys I would not give.


It made me think about when I donate

how do I choose which need to placate.

It’s a nice feeling to be helping others

but god-like to choose between brothers,

that makes me uneasy having to decide

who comes in and who stays outside.
