Treasure Island

Alice Walker

(9 February 1944 - / Eatonton Georgia)

Don’t be like Those who Ask for Everything


Don’t be like those who ask for everything:
praise, a blurb, a free ride in my rented
limousine. They ask for everything but never offer
anything in return.
Be like those who can see that my feet ache
from across a crowded room
that a foot rub
if I’m agreeable
never mind the staring
is the best way to smile
& say hello
to me.
