Traitor


I once fed a starving dog
It became my friend for life
I gave a homeless man money for food
He then robbed me with his knife
A man will betray the hand that feeds him
Greed has made him worse than any beast
An animal will eat what is given them
Upon the suffering of others man will feast.
The world is full of people who are corrupt
They never back out from their unethical means
All they care about is their own self-interested desires
They forgot what is to wear gloves and jeans
Man is too selfishly engrossed in his own world
Too bad he isn’t born poor and blind
A dog though is faithful to the very end
Man; he is a traitor to his own kind.

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:

The solitary child.
