Donate or Dump

I have this frequent dilemma
I have acquired much stuff
It really gets quite confusing
Can’t tell when I have enough

I either must dump it or donate
Discard or contribute as gift
I scratch my head and I wonder
As I muse, I sort and I sift

The refrigerator’s a good place to start
Can tell what’s good by the date
And if the labels are removed
The smell will tell if it’s late

Then on to the stuff in my basement
I’ll hit the garage after that
Of course there’s junk in my closet
Old suits to go with old hats

If I donate I get some tax credit
If I dump it, no one will notice
The food in the fridge, the dog refuses
Bad meat mixed with bad produce

If I had my dog to inspect
His nose could tell me what to do
Donate to the poor or just dump it?
Must decide, there’s more shopping to do

Luke 12: 18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God
