Save a Soul

Why give a flower worth 
fifty thousand bucks to the 
dead,
when it can get five 
thousand dying kids well 
fed.
Why use a million bucks for 
fun to fly to france,
when it can ofset the 
overhead of the oppressed 
and orphans.

Why have a house on a hill 
or a sky scrapper on the 
sea,
when the future engineer 
cannot pay his school fee.
Why garnish your body 
with golden garments,
when a medical doctor in 
the making daily laments.

Hey, those classy and 
colourful cars cannot fit 
into your casket,
your buildings will say 
goodbye when you kick 
the bucket.
What will live after you are 
the lives you have truly 
touched;
what will count in afterlife 
are those you cared for or 
crushed.

Give a hope to the hopeless 
and a hand to the helpless,
that little change can 
change the chances of the 
cheerless;
our words, water, will, 
wealth and whatever we 
have,
can save the souls that 
stink, stumble, and starve.
Save a soul today!
