    You might gain some sympathy,
    From someone who recognizes you are in disguise.
    And they are in the mood,
    To share with you their good attitude.
    IF they have some of 'that' left! '

    Truly, if they don't recognize, then nothing and if recognized, the good attitude should be left in them

    The poem brings out the fading goodness in man and conveys the great message
    Loved reading the poem and added to my poem list (Report) Reply

    Well done - despite the golden rule that says you need to avoid figures that will date the poem!

    Perhaps a haiku would go like this:
    Mustn't complain,
    Should have complained,
    Why didn't I complain.
    We have to stop believing the BS and start standing up to these corporations and their pupets in our Governments.-10 (Report) Reply
