Danny had two dollar
I had none.
Said to Danny
Give me one.
Danny said no,
I worked too hard
To part with either,
You ain't my pard.

So I

Went to the MAN,
Said Danny's rich
He won't share,
The son of a bitch.
The MAN went to Danny
Said give him one
You'll have one left
(At the point of a gun.)

Well

Danny said no
So the MAN shot him dead
Took his two dollar
Both bloody red.
Gave me one
The MAN kept the other
Told me to give half o' mine
To another needy brother.

Well

I told the man no
I worked too hard
To get what I got
My brother ain't no pard.
The MAN pointed his gun
Directly at me
Shot me down too
Took my dollar from me.

So

The Man had my dollar
Gave half to my brother.
Said give fifty cents
To a poor old mother,
And told her to give
A quarter to her sister.
Mother said to the Man;
You wouldn't shoot a woman
Would you mister?

Why mercy works
Danny had two dollar
I had none.
Said to Danny
Give me one.
Danny said here,
You take both
Christ said I need
love the most.

So I

Went to the MAN,
Said Danny's a loon
Gave me both his dollar,
Whatcha gonna do?
The MAN went to Danny
Said are you crazay?
Now you got no bucks.
(Should we lock him away?)

Well

Danny said no
I can earn extra dough
But love, once it starts,
comes back mo' and mo'
The MAN said
what if I say you must come with me?
Danny shrugs and says,
OK. So peacefully...

Well

I told the man no
Don't take Danny away
I wanted to hear him,
what crazy stuff he might say.
The MAN pointed his gun
Directly at me
Said, you ratted him out
Go home. Let it be.

So

I had my two dollar
Gave half to my brother.
Said give fifty cents
To a poor old mother,
And asked her to give
A quarter to her sister.
Mother said to me;
Thank you
Thank you mister

The Title
I think the title is perfect, and yes I this is a very witty poem, with a lot to think on.

Kind of like "When Atlas Shrugged" in short verse....

Well done
