Get Paid (an acrostic poem)

Ginny hated volunteering with a passion

Even if it was for an awesome cause like the animal shelter

That’s why she was in such a black mood, but she was there

 

Patrick came in, happy to see Ginny showed up

As he handed her her favorite coffee he turned up the wattage of his smile

It made Ginny rethink this whole volunteering thing

Dollars weren’t the only currency around

Blessed (an acrostic poem)

Being poor could be a burden at times, okay most of the time

Lenny tried to not let it bother him though

Even as he poked through the trash to find redeemable bottles

Sifting through the rubbish Lenny found a lottery ticket

Scratching it off, Lenny had won ten thousand dollars

Ever since that day Lenny mailed out two Hallmark cards with a crisp $20 in each

Doing random acts of kindness to show people that they matter
