Your Word Should Be Your Bond


'Tis said money speaks every language and talk can come cheap
But a promise you make is one you ought to keep
Your word should be your bond but with some 'tis not that way
Some don't stick to their word that does seem sad to say.

With honourable people the World does not abound
And when it comes to money trust is hard to be found
That's why we have legal documents some to their word not true
Those who honour their word great respect are due.

Your word you should honour that is how it should be
But some people are only known for their dishonesty
Their word is quite worthless they cannot be taken on trust
But their word it is sacred to the honourable and just.

The honourable people their word never break
And they never go back on a promise they make
But those without honour their word never keep
And the karma we sow is the karma we'll reap.
