Everyone Is Asking For Money💲

It keeps popping up!

  Everyone Is Asking For Money 💲

Everyone is asking for money.
I turn on the TV: they’re asking for money.
Turn on computer, my mail – the same.
The pictures are awful.
The damned thing is global:
Weather, destruction, starvation
In nature by nation – increasingly same.
People, the forests, politics, candidates –
List upon list in non-stop variation,
Growingly worse, the facts and condition:
To choose is just ‘no’ or ‘yes’,
Guessing which donee needs succouring more,
The money and/or their or your.
To name, reader dear, some prioritized cause
Is only to make the worse suffering more.
An elephant killed,
A life stilled forever;
Polar bear, flower,
A child overpowered –
The list never ending.
What, where, who to give to
When all the world’s asking
While we may be basking Florida’s sun.

Postscript:
Then there’s corruption!
Who knows
Where the money goes?
Huh?
