DONATIONS PLEASE – Your help is sourly needed, you know, to cover expenses.

 “Your doing what?”  A friend yelled at me

“Your letting them read, and have it for free?”


I want them to read, and see what I see.

Their comments are wonderful, it has to be free

So I’m sharing with you, a small problem I have.

To cover expenses, a problem so sad.

Such a small problem yet, a problem indeed.

Blogging cost are accelerating thus causing a need

Mailing service monthly bill, and Hosting services too

Miscellaneous expenses, oh what shall I do


“Ask for donations, their comments are fine

If they like what you’ve written, they’ll give you a dime.”


You might think this poem was written for money for me

but it’s about the expenses, and keeping the site free

So now I must ask (humbly) for a penny or two

my PayPal account will accept money from you.

With heavy heart I have asked, and now must carry on

my account name at PayPal is:

Thank you for reading, and spending your time

Thank you for sharing, your comments are fine

I’m sorry I’m asking for money from you,

but think for a moment, just what would you do?
