Cost Effective - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Wouldn't it more cost effective,
To pay them not to do anything...
Than to pay them,
With the expectation
They will do something?
And nothing will get done?
Remember those days,
When we witnessed
This same potential come
To stare in the face of everyone?
And what that did...
To you, your 'ex', family and kids?
Either way...
It is still a gamble!
Good luck.
Who knows...
This time,
The odds may be in your favor!
I'm going to wait and see,
Just how much blood you'll bleed...
Before you might need any of mine from me!
