Demand Them Gone - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Take all of 'your' pains and demand them gone.
Shake them off your back and tell them to move on!
And just like that...
Tell them to leave.
And just like that...
Stop them from feeding.
And just like that...
Tell them to leave.
And just like that...
Stop them from feeding.

Take all of 'your' pains and demand them gone.
Shake them off your back and tell them to move on!
And just like that...
Tell them to leave.
And just like that...
Stop them from feeding.
And just like that...
Tell them to leave.
And just like that...
Stop them from feeding.

No matter if they come back,
Tell them to leave.
No matter if they come back,
Don't get weak.

No matter if they come back,
Tell them to leave.
No matter if they come back,
Don't get weak.

Take all of 'your' pains and demand them gone.
Shake them off your back and tell them to move on!
No matter if they come back,
Tell them to leave.
And no matter if they come back,
Don't get weak.
No matter if they come back,
Tell them to leave.
And no matter if they come back,
Don't get weak.
