Faith, Hope and Charity

Of their cardinal virtues
I know their hope bears strong resemblance to greed,
And their faith moves never very far from prejudice,

But Caritas, even without vanity, is conditional
And complex, how the volition might receive
The subtle sights of cases deserving of her care.

Perhaps this, another thing of belonging,
Their charity begins at customs out, and not at home,
Because there can be none who does not share in its bounties,
Not in this fair land.
