Thinking on

I am
quite well off,
better off than some,

those for whom the sun
doesn’t often shine

and the old adage,
what’s mine is mine
does not apply,

if we can’t give back some
of our happiness to the less
fortunate among us
then we become
‘them’

‘greedy men’
and that’s a trap
set for the unwary
which scares me
because
it’s so easy to fall into,
when I think that I’m
better than you.
