Lent

What's it like to build a house
and be the first one in
or drive a car that's so brand new
the wheels have yet to spin?
I wouldn't know, I've never made
a profit off my sin
existing on the hand-me-downs
of those that do and grin
increasing their possessions
when penance should begin.

You don't know how many times I started this comment. But I'm having difficulty with it. I'm hoping that you are not really this discontent with your life and resentful of those around you. I'm sorry you feel this way. Maybe you don't really?

Hey Donna, no this is for those truly hurting as my theme this week is corporate greed.

Hi Shawn, thanks a lot!
