Rhyme and Reason
Dr. Shehzad Saleem


Spending on others is noble

A trait so human and global


Yet selfish we do become

Ignoring the sad and glum


And then we do shy away

If we have little in our tray


Others we can ask to pool in

If our own resources are thin


And if we have been kind

To those deaf and blind


Never must we brag

Or wave our own flag


But reach out to others in pain

And worried for them remain


And scold not those who ask

And take not them to task


And not stress upon them

Those favours done to them


Generosity let us not flaunt

And give away even in want


Searching for those in need

Is humane and kind indeed


But remember when we roam

That charity begins at home
