- Alexa Beaubrun
lead with generosity, feed with fish
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day;
teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime
But through your eyes
people in need are just clutter
littering the pristine ground of your mind
Soiling the fresh taste of independence
inconveniencing america's royals
Give the man some sustenance, I say.
Two fish for him, perhaps.
Two fish to survive and thrive and have the ability to fish
Nourish him because he is human,
Then, fill him with skills that will aid him later.
But if we don’t feed the man before it's too late,
he will inevitably perish.
