Homage

Charity with a hidden agenda

Help isn’t helpful,
when imposed.
My needs, wishes, requests,
translated,
transmogrified,
made over in the image you see.
Whatever drives you:
control, power,
homage to the dead guy,
I don’t know.
Your offer is
veiled in false friendship.
What you think is good for me —
that’s no gift.
