There’s the nice or there’s the nasty
There’s the good or there’s the bad
There’s the fun or there’s the serious
There’s those who are happy or who are sad

There’s the content or there’s the angry
There’s the pleasant or unkind
There’s the elated or the grieving
There are those with hope or fearful mind

There’s the surprised and the indifferent
There’s the proud or the ashamed
There’s generous or the greedy
There are those known and those unnamed

There’s the relieved and the frustrated
There’s those that restrict or give liberty
Lives of contrasting emotions
But which today will set us free?



I don’t like the mean and selfish
I think it’s really sad
Particularly when the miser
Behaves in a way that’s bad
And takes from all their sponsors
In such a total way
That they leave a wake of deprivation
And a world that’s smeared in grey

For the colours of the generous
Have good and worth criss-crossed
With pledges to munificence
That do not count the cost
And where hearts so overflow
With honour and with love
For those that buy-in to benevolence
Are like angels from above

They dress the world in purer garments
Subscribing to a moral code
Where respect and honours pathways
Reside as one in their abode
So let the call go to all scrooges
To those who do not like to give
To encourage generosity
As a kinder way to live.
