Is This Boosting Automatic - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Is a boosting automatic,
When one gives up their pain.
And is a boosting automatic,
When there's nothing to gain...
By remaining in pain.

Now is a boosting automatic,
When there's nothing to claim...
But pain!
And stays unchanged.

Is a boosting automatic,
When one gives up their pain.
And is a boosting automatic,
When there's nothing to gain...
By remaining in pain.
And nothing is changed.

Is a boosting automatic,
When one gives up on pain.
Is a boosting automatic,
When the game has been changed.
And nothing's the same.

Is a boosting automatic,
When there's no pain gained.
Is a boosting automatic,
When the game is changed.
Is the boosting automatic.
Is the boosting automatic.
Is a boosting automatic,
When there's no pain gained.
Now is a boosting automatic,
When the game is changed.
Is the boosting automatic.
Is this boosting automatic.

Is a boosting automatic,
With a fresh start.
Now is this boosting automatic,
When it's felt in one's heart.
Is this boosting automatic.
Is this boosting automatic.

Is a boosting automatic,
When one gives up their pain.
And is this boosting automatic,
When there's nothing to gain...
By remaining in pain.
Now is this boosting automatic.
Is the boosting automatic.
Or emphatically erratic.
