Poem – ” Ruffled Feathers “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “




The rich hold benefits

for the fellow rich

pat themselves on the back

pretending they are helping the world

only it is their world

high above


until they need a little more cash

from the populace –

wealth is a test

sent direct – to the rich

who bitch

but seldom pitch





A tithe (from Old English teogoþa “tenth”) is a one-tenth part of something, paid as a (usually) voluntary contribution or as a tax or levy, usually to support a religious organization. Today, tithes (or tithing) are normally voluntary and paid in cash, cheques, or stocks, whereas historically tithes could be paid in kind, such as agricultural products. Several European countries operate a formal process linked to the tax system allowing some churches to assess tithes.

“Tithing” also has unrelated economic and juridical senses, dating back to the Early Middle Ages. See “Tithing (country subdivision)”.

10% of 1 million dollars is  $100,000.00,

 if you have 10 million that would be ONE MILLION dollars given to charity.
