Bad Samaritan Law

Nothing says that I

Must help that man

Stuck in the snow

Staunch his bleeding, call a cab

Not a damn law, no!

 

If I choose to render help

And lean on common sense

And things run foul

And harm still comes

Will I have good defense?

 

Better leave the boy

I think, to pine

And thirst and fail

I can’t be sued or spanked or charged

Or find myself in Jail.

 

But do I only answer

To that cop and court downtown?

Or do the words of

Matthew twenty-five

Still bring me down?
