I don’t know how you feel about
The rescued Chilean miners,
But I lost my sympathetic
Feelings for them when they shown me
how money-grubbing they become.
Hiring an accountant while
still underground to track and share
the proceeds rubs me the wrong way.
While they’re down in the mine, the world
is hoping and praying for their
safe return and all the while they
are conjuring ways to make money.
I feel like a fool for wasting
my prayers on such a grubbing lot.
