I'm Movin' On Up
Here of late, though, instead of plain old folks the messages have come from pretty important people like Abdulahi Dieng, esquire. Now we all know that a man entitled to have esquire after his name has to be honest and upstanding and probably is a lawyer.
Then there was one from Reverend Paul Orgor who flat out said he is doin' God's work and what kind of a person could ignore someone like that?
But the latest came from no less than Princess Victoria herself. I don't recall offhand exactly what country she happens to be a princess of but it was one I'm not overly familiar with.
Now I can't help but wonder if next I'll be hearin' from the Queen or maybe even the King. Like I said before, the thing about these e-mails that make you feel warm inside is that every one of these kind and generous folks want to give me money. There's nothin' much to it, either. All I gotta do is send 'em a little of my own cash to show my good faith and maybe supply 'em with my Social Security number and a little information on my bank account so they'll know where to send those big sums just waitin' for my reply.
There's people out there that don't place much stock in this sorta stuff, though. People lackin' trust in their fellow man. Like this old lady in an Akron suburb who was notified she had won the Jamaican Lottery and sent a little of that good-faith money. And then a little bit more and a little more after that until she was out $20,000. Now a person of faith who sees the good in people and admires the trustworthiness of his fellow humans would know she was right on the verge of collectin' serious money if she had gone ahead and made just one more payment instead of callin' the cops. Well, like they say, that's the way it goes.
The really heart warmin' thing about all these kind folks with money to send out is that they always seem to want to send it to old people. Now if knowin' there are people like that in this world doesn't bring warmth to your heart I just don't know what it would take.
