I Did That From Scratch - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Some create their best work,
By using their abilities to cut and paste.
And with fresh glue to apply to it too...
Motivates them to bragg about their talents.

When I hear someone say,
'I did that from scratch.'
And I believe their statements...
As I witness their fingers,
On their heads do that.

To create from 'nothing',
That one envisions from an inspiration...
Isn't easy to put together,
For pieces of it to fit.

And after what one completes...
Others become motivated,
To snip an idea.
As a qualifying aspect of their originality.
Signed and delived with no sweat equity attached.
