Everyone For Themselves

Everyone for themselves and God for us all
A saying from my younger years that I recall
In the twenty first century with some 'tis that way
Old habits die hard as some are known to say
Even if you are compassionate, generous and kind
The knockers in you some fault are bound to find
By their type any credit to you is denied
They think by your good deeds some guilt you do hide
Far too many in famines and in wars have died
And between the haves and the have nots the gap keeps growing wide
Thousands are in poverty for every millionaire
For the billions of have nots life doesn't seem fair
And that saying from my younger years I can recall
Everyone for themselves and God for us all.
