A Duty To Do To Get Done - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Fixed to the hip,
Like a limb that exists.
And not wasted in debate,
Is any time to nonsense to give.
Not when a feeling like this persists.

One knows they have a purpose,
With little effort with a guessing to expose.
One knows as this purpose continues to grow.

To do what one is born to do,
And knows?
Is more like a duty imposed at birth.
A duty to do to get done to not refuse,
To excuse its presence or ignore.
