For Services Rendered - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

What's the use of tap dancing...
If you are doing so in hush puppies?
I thought the whole idea
Was to make as much noise as possible,
When washing windows?
Especially if the purpose is to attract attention,
For the need of a higher pay!
Unless there has been a promise made,
To give everyone a pig AND a chicken...
For services rendered?
