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.
