A Sunday Poem — “Giving”

 

You see this ad every

Easter,

Thanksgiving,

Christmas.

 

A homeless man having dinner.

 

Your donation of $2.97

would provide him with that special

meal.

 

What he eats on the other days of the year

isn’t the issue.

 

Focus on the bargain.

 

Buying a clean conscience

has never been

cheaper.

 

(Editor’s note: poet Shai Ben-Shalom, an Israeli-born biologist, examines current events in the Blacklock’s tradition each and every Sunday)
