Charity Begins at Selfridges

By Andrea Neidle

God bless you
he said
I only put twopence in his hat
Bless you he said

They were playing teddy bears picnic

Every day
I pass that way
hardened
But it was teddy bears picnic
not Edelweiss
that made me reach for my purse

God bless you he said

If only He would

it would be worth
twopence a day
for the rest of my life

Just think

For fourteen pence a week
I could be saved.
