Charity Begins at Home

Do you practice charity?
Please accept congratulations
From the poor of all the nations
I of which, too oft, unwilling be

There is one kind I practice, though,
The one all of our epigrams
Demand true charity demands,
Without which others somewhat hollow grow

Do not exclusivist become
Be, too, compassionately kind
To those to whom many are blind:
They say that charity begins at home
