Fibbers Are Quick To Deliver - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Stay bonded to commitments,
You make to benefit.
One day you'll be rewarded,
For your giving focusness.

Many say they'll do something,
And that 'thing' becomes nothing.
Others promise they'll deliver,
But remain they do just fibbers.
And fibbers are quick to deliver,
More of their lies.

Some will take a task to do,
To do and with closed lips.
While others may just sit...
Perhaps to start but not finish.

Some will take a task to do,
And not from it to quit.
To then get deserved credit...
While others moan and pitch a fit.

Some will take a task to do,
To do and with closed lips.
While others may just sit...
Perhaps to start but never to finish.

Stay bonded to commitments,
You make to benefit.
One day you'll be rewarded,
For your giving focusness.

Some will take a task to do,
And not from it to quit.
To then get deserved credit...
While others moan and pitch a fit.

And those who moan and pitch a fit,
Believe they too should benefit...
With a doing nothing but to prove,
They give mood with attitude.

And those fibbers are quick to deliver...
More of their lies.
Yes those fibbers are quick to deliver...
More of their lies.

Fibbers are quick to predict who'll accept when delivered,
More of their lies.
Fibbers are quick to predict who'll accept when delivered,
More of their lies.
