A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

No hungered child is a lost soul Nor a beggar be taught how to live By preaching morals to the poor We take from whom we should give

"

Becky Payton and I

Becky Payton and I


Many men are at times misled


as most could be thought of as blind

Measuring by what they won't do

instead of to whom they were kind


Attempting to build an empire

judging themselves by what they deny

Thinking them best who resist temptation

be it a crime for a man to cry


No hungered child is a lost soul

nor a beggar be taught how to live

By preaching morals to the poor

we take from whom we should give


Goodness is not what we won't do

nor a question of who we exclude

It is an unselfish act of Humanity

to see ourselves in those we include

Five stanzas of near perfect poetry. Each stanza is a self-contained lesson (parable) and they are tied together by the title and pictures. The styles of individual lines are consistently interesting (stilted language in some ways, archaic in other ways, but all working together for the overall effect of the theme). And, a good theme - God's work (if you think God needs an apostrophe to help His work, check line 16. Great work on this one.

Yes we have a lot of work to do in that respect, but also to make sure there aren't too many on the streets begging, your work here is up to its usual very high standard, I appreciate you sharing your thoughts.

It's to blame someone than try to fix them. Not saying that's right, just saying that's why.

thats why what?

That's why people often blame the needy for their problems rather than sympathize with and help them.. read more

That is also why the poor more often give more than the rich in relationship to what they can afford.. read more
