The Giving Spirit

Generosity's sun roasts saplings to desert scrub
It's clean now and charity's satisfaction
Has performed the obliged obeisance

Is a ripple or a coot more probable
On April's floundering starkness--burns
Show where the naturalists failed to divine
The irreverence of dichotomous designations

The spirit moved them! Give and give alms!
Spartan welts prove the fervor of war devotion

Give as good as you rot and watch carefully
Devotion is going the way of the kitchen drain
Clogged and waiting for a snake
