Donations

We accept donations of old clothes and books
and toys with moving pieces considered broken
and if you’ve got a pot you think no longer cooks.
Or any song with a word you’ve left unspoken.

The vile addict father we can leave reviled —
he’s the fool to have expected appreciation.
But for the peace of his motherless homeless child,
                                          we accept donations.
