Donate Today As You Pay!

The cat was out and about and then heard a familiar shout. It was as familiar as can be and I'm sure it has been heard by thee. Would you like to donate to this and that? Just add a buck to my corporate hat.

Groceries collected.
Idiots neglected.
If it's a good day.
Otherwise the idiots play.

You still have to pay,
No matter the day.
So pay up and get out.
But then comes the shout.

Donate a dollar?
A familiar holler.
Why not two?
We could round up for you?

Yep, let's donate.
Let's take the bait.
Let's believe you.
Yeah, sarcasm came due.

Bite me is better.
Get it on a sweater.
Just hide it from nuts,
And those angry mutts.

Who makes the claim?
Not the guy or dame.
Nope, not one bit.
Corporate a-holes don't give a shit.

Nope, not at all.
They pretend to stand tall.
They really are pretending,
As they do a lot of pucker up bending.

You donated away.
I did with my pay.
Let's just pretend.
Many sure did lend.

Woweeee, Corporation A donates a ton.
Yep, they donated after fleecing everyone.
It was all because of the corporation.
They deserve all of the elation.

Don't forget their handling fees.
Taking those out was a breeze.
You helped them seem grand.
Don't you feel all warm and tingly across the land?

Pfffft is all the cat can say, especially after reading some things they do at their bay. They may shave a bit off for expenses and such and it can add up to much. Or they just claim they made it all. Yep, no help from anyone else as they stand tall. Pfffft they can just suck on the gas that comes out my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  8. You picked a pet peeve of mine, Pat! I hear that shout daily when I'm out and about.

    I have to admit, I fall for the firemen with their boots every year. They were outside my grocery store Monday morning, local fire engines and all. And the Salvation Army pots at Christmas, especially when it's cold and snowy.

    Other than that, I support only certain charities through the mail. What I hate are the "phone beggars" (as Terry calls them). A firm hangup is all they get. But I have been fortunate in my life, and I believe I have an obligation to give back by supporting certain charities that do work I admire.

    btw I watched "K-19 The Widowmaker" last night. It was partly filmed in the Halifax Shipyards and harbor. starring Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson.
    I really enjoyed it! Have a good one!

  10. I donate to some and skip others- depending on if I feel they are valid or not (and when they catch me).

  11. I try and donate to charities that I know are legitimate. I usually do my donations around the holidays. I'll purchase canned goods to donate through my daughter's school and I always donate to toys for tots through my job. A few years I would purchase a Christmas present for a child in our church.

  12. My daughter works in retail and each year they sell either the green clovers or yellow ribbons for a dollar to go to some charity. But in her store whoever sells the most ribbons or clovers each day gets a $25 bonus. That's why they push them so hard on you.

  19. Rarely do I give cold hard cash. Most of these charities don't do squat for helping others, just giving the fat cats bonuses. I do give food to the food bank and we do toys to the needy at Christmas.

    1. Those are ones to do
      But yeah, fat cats take much at their zoo

  20. And that's why, if I ever give to a charity, I research them now quite thoroughly. I've sick of 95% of my donation going to pay for some corporate scumbags third yacht.
