Job of Justice

Job of Justice
(posted for the A to Z Challenge)

British pastor William Booth was born on April  10, 1829. Booth founded the Salvation Army with his wife, Catherine Booth. The Booths put their proverbial (and literal) money where their mouths were, creating a charitable legacy that would minister to millions.

Today’s poetic post is inspired by their impact.

J is for Job and Justice … or Jaded.

Job of Justice

Our joy to a job we may thrust;
To make many monies we must.
Yet finances fade,
And attitudes jade,
When, lonely, for lucre we lust.

Employment may echo disgust
And bounty may beckon to bust,
Unless we upgrade
With honor displayed,
Investing in much higher trust.
