the selfishness of charity
Are you still a good person for helping people if you get something out of it?
I’ve seen this argument floating around so I wanted to address it
To do so I had to filter through my own recollections
Not just my own but those I’ve been in bed with
In heads with, on desks with and it’s been said to recommend
If you’re going to give money to some organization
Or if moments on the news have left you feeling frustrated
And you want to do something but still feel...appreciated?
When you ponder on what you could do with the matter and want something also to make you feel flattered
Consider concocting a new flavor of batter
This mix is created with sugar and spice, a dusting of selfishness and everything nice
For don’t be afraid to be led to the bright side
You can live with laughter and hopeful kind smiles
Whatever you want to do is worth your while
It’s better to add in the mixins you like
Or else set a breakfast with things that cause strife
If you’re angry while stirring, feeling you deserve better
You’ll forget to feel love - and that’s what makes good batter!
