I can help the poor,
only if i don’t have to walk in your shoes.
I can make ethical choices,
when i live in abundance.
Ethical choices make me feel good,
they do little to help you…
or my understanding of what you go through.
You don’t have enough money to fill your belly.
I overfill mine.
still i have money & energy left over, so much left over.
i’ll remedy my excess at the gym.
what i really need is a remedy of the heart.
Some reflections after I successfully raised money for Oxfam by buying & consuming large quantities of brownies Mmmm… & failed miserably at the “live below the line challenge“.
