Given Time By Another - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
No one should volunteer their time,
To do willingly and without expectation...
Come to find that those accepting,
Believe it to perceive...
A receiving from someone done to get,
Is done as a favor to disrespect.
'Not only did they show up,
At least two hours late.
They also stated I should not be agitated.
Since they did arrive to accomodate 'my' efforts.'
No they didn't?
Then what did you do? ~
'I took that as an opportunity,
Not to waste my efforts on them again.'
No you didn't?
Then what did they do? ~
'I don't know.
But I am sure you will tell them.
That's why I am taking this time,
In the hopes this you will do.'
~Now you know I'm not the one to gossip.
What else happened? ~
