Giving Up - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Giving up!
I don't know,
The meaning of it.
Am I out of luck?

Giving up!
I don't know.
The meaning of it,
To stay stuck in a rut.

Giving up!
I don't know.
But many people...
Seem to share this equally.

I hear the fussers cussing,
Not to give it up.
I see those hustlers rushing,
Not to give it up.
And...
I see some frantic.
And,
In a panic.

Giving up!
I don't know.
And I wont!
'Cause I don't.

Giving up!
I don't know.
The meaning of it.
Am I out of luck?

Giving up!
I don't know.
The meaning of it,
To stay stuck in a rut.

I hear the fussers cussing,
Not to give it up.
I see those hustlers rushing,
Not to give it up.
And...
I see some frantic.
And,
In a panic.

Giving up!
I don't know.
But...
I hear the fussers cussing.
I see those hustlers rushing.
Giving up!
I don't know.
But I...
See some frantic.
And...
In a panic.
But giving up!
I don't know.
