From the Rich to the Poor

I was in church once and the Sunday School message was about doing the right thing. Then they brought up Robin Hood. They asked me if he was good or bad. I said that he was good. He was helping the poor, which is a good thing to do. They were in uproar. In their eyes, no one who stole could be a good person. They also said that me being non-Christian was the reason that I had the view I had. I never went back. What do you think? Was Robin Hood good or pad?

Those who have much

Won’t miss a little

So he took and gave

To the ones with few

If it were you in his shoes

Would you do it too?


She took his heart and drove him away

He was just another victim in the long line

Another casualty

Collateral damage on the dangerous road

He never saw it coming

It was all over in the blink of an eye

He used to be a good guy

Until her

With his heart missing

He would never again be the same

She carefully placed her prize

On the shelf with the others

She smiled to herself

It was so easy

It was always this easy

They practically offered their hearts to her

Instead of turning them away

She took it gladly

Worst than grim when it came to mercy

A collector of hearts was she
