Expectations Are Too High - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If what is believed is so easy.
As it is perceived and rumored to be.
Why do so many express less interest?
To denounce those doing it,
Do it without a labored effort.
Or an agonizing heard as an input.

While others suspend the notion of hard work...
To be something that is monitored from 9 to 5.
Leaving a majority to whine and cry,
That expectations are too high.
And those salaries that are paid,
For their avoidance to do any work at all...
Is too low!

And a 'luck' has been bestowed upon those,
Who enjoy what it is done they do.
With few getting paid to complain.
