Oh the rich!

Oh the rich!
The message here is loud and clear
Donate.... share and love all
there are many like us
who look after you
lend a heart and soul
achieve your desired goal
but on money slightly loosen your hold

Behold there are many here
who at minus 30 die of cold
their hands do hold
poor they are not by destiny
but many be owing to lack of opportunity

Share as much as you may
I have only poetic words to say
love em you may....
have a nicer meal today!

If only we could sort out this problem, I am not sure where the USA is but the UK is supposed to be in the top six richest countries in the world, yet as you say some of your people die through lack of heat, and here only this morning it was said that some have to decide to eat or to heat their homes, this is civilisation taken to its limits, God help the poor countries.
I have just finished cataloguing just my stamp collection that has grown over the years and is now at over £10,000.
I wish there was a place I could send the extras to help people like the North American Indians, I have an address some place, but if you know of another it would help as the one I have is from when we did a fund raising thing here a few years ago.
I have lived in Africa and seen the bottom end of the way people have to live.
When there I had to find workers once and went to the village and there under the tree were the men talking amongst themselves and I gave them a job for a day, mind you I paid over the odds for it but I knew they would buy food for their families.
I loved integrating with the local population when away on jobs, and most are wonderful people.
I use to look after the ones that worked for me, sometimes they took advantage though.
I said that I would take some of them home one day after work as we were late, and asked where they lived, Oh just down the road over there Boss they would say, it was 20 miles down a dirt track, though they were worth it.
That will do for now, you take care young Bard and keep writing, Yours Ian..

you change your snap... a bit too often
and better that you do
as ten grand is lot of money
You have three decades more to go
to touch 100 plus as we all know
so save your stamps for rainier days
one can't seem to know
when they may come
as it snows

You too take care
you have a greater risk than i
as my stamps are very old
some of UK and USA
Africa nay or may

I shall return to the Children way before 3 decades grace my door, and I am not rich or anything but have things to share and the things to pass on to younger ones is because they will have the energy to sort and use as my time is full up with many things.
You just take care young Bard, Yours Ian

not cursing
we must live
till we can
slowly walk
to the incinerator
one day
some day
maybe not too far away!

This is great Loved - I can't even imagine how painful it must be to freeze to death in minus 30 - I love the message and your heart.

Love Mand xxxx

of how the police have to round up the homeless in new york city when it gets so cold. it's so sad, and this captures part of that. nice job. may I post this to the official blog?


and a real pleasure
more who share this
the merrier
we must help those who are in such a situation
all rich must keep in mind
we leave everything
to a few kith and kin behind
who may already be hoarding a gold mine.
