To My Nephew, Mathew

Mathew, my nephew, is very hospitable and humble,
And with a grumble he expresses the concrete jungle,
As he works to aid the poor, particularly the homeless,
He knows the score, and is constructive in guileness.

He is an academic to praise, studying hard and long,
To achieve a positive purpose to belong in the throng
Of peers who are likewise minded to care for the suffering -
As lots of us suffer, particularly those fretting about housing.

He is chivalrous - has etiquette, and is honourable in his intentions,
And his mother and brother and other reiterate this with many mentions,
As we are proud that he is loud to stand his stance of a glance
At those less-fortunate, and to aid this plight of might gripe chance.
