Ode to the Road

They say the road to hell
is paved with good intentions
Philanthropy lauded in the news
Love of the limelight for altruism

Millions spent by famous ones
who garner billions upon billions
start foundations seeking donations
from peasants in need of charity

But the road to heaven
is paved with an old woman’s
last two tiny copper coins

Day 4 Lesson for Blogging U: Theme is map, form is ode, and poetic device is metaphor.
