The Essential Ingredient

Poem:

Too much laughter without thinking

Of the other person’s tears;

Much bravado with no feeling

For the other person’s fears;

Greed and selfishness excluding

Needs the other person has,

Serves to fray the moral fabric

Our social order shares.

As the dough that welcomes kneeding

And must have the yeast to rise,

That it could be firmer, fuller,

Well-regarded as a prize.

So is charity to fortune —

Wealth and comfort, good and well!

When it rises firm and proper,

It would in the end excel!
