Not Your Charity Case (Reprise)


Did I not think that you
Fully potential had
To be a happy person
Both successful and glad

In both material
And also spiritual ways
I’d leave you to go heedlessly
About your chosen days

If I take trouble write
And pray, and silent be, and speak
It is because I wish for you
Of happiness the peak

Or I would be doing
What you tell folks I am
And have told them since ever
Opportunity began:

Not really caring, only
Taking full advantage of
What you graciously offer
In the name of love

Deserve I in no way
The salty stigma of
One who takes advantage
Of the offerings of love

I pull my weight and more
Although given no credit be
I’m very far from being a case
For your charity
