Dishonesty Is Given To Get And Taken - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Too many are dishonest.
And living amongst themselves with it.
With a doing of this playfully,
And encouraged to remain children unfit.
To relish their immaturity and 'thick-headedness'.

Too many are dishonest.
And prepared to lie and cheat.
As witnessed by those much younger,
Practicing false beliefs...
They too one day will teach.

Too many are dishonest.
Thinking it 'cool' to fool and deceive.
And too many have grown older,
Without integrity or identities...
To leave,
Future generations...
With a solid effectiveness respected,
As a qualifying priority.

They should expect this from others...
As it is given to get and taken as received.
But this perception is not uppermost,
In minds hosting floating boats...
Circling until their throats are choked!

Since,
Dishonesty...
Is given to get,
And taken...
To receive!

Dis-honesty...
Is given to get,
And taken...
To receive!

With a feeling to fullfill a need.

Dishonesty...
Is given to get,
And taken...
To receive!
