Scarcity of charity

He cares for the sick and the needy

He feeds both the poor and the lonely

He is there for the hearts of the broken

And he helps where all help has receded


It’s not this

That elicits his tears

But the scarcity of charity

Beneath my deceitful veneer

He speaks for the voiceless and silenced

And guides for the lost and the blind

He talks when all talk is evaded

He soothes through the rough and unjust

It’s not this

That elicits his tears

But the scarcity of charity

Beneath my deceitful veneer


And when he has done all he can

And knows of all work still undone

He lays down his head for a moments respite

And looks to his faith for some bleak rationale

It’s not this

That elicits his tears

But the scarcity of charity

Beneath my deceitful veneer
