Just Another Figment - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It's better to give it than get it!
Better to give it than get it.
It is better to give it than get it.
That's how some minds of people,
Believe that they should live...
Distrusting others but keeping their own druthers,
With demands from others they expect their trust.
But trust is not what they give up.
To give it up that much.

It's better to give it than get it!
Better to give it than get it.
So many seem committed,
To want more than they give.
That's how some minds of people,
Believe that they should live...
With demands from others they expect their trust.
But trust is not what they give up.

It's better to give it than get it!
'Oh? '
Better to give it than get it.
'Is it? '
It's better to give it than get it!
That's how some minds of people,
Believe that they should live.
No matter who is fooled to dupe.
As long as the doing is done to do.

It's better to give it than get it!
'Oh? '
Better to give it than get it.
'Is it? '
It's better to give it than get it!
No matter who is fooled to dupe.
As long as the doing is done to do.
Do it to whomever gets duped.
'Oh? '
Do it to whomever gets duped.
'Oh? '
No matter who is fooled to dupe.
Do it to whomever gets duped.
'Oh? '

Trick,
No matter who treats their greedy needs.
No matter who is used to get it done.

It's better to give it than get it!
Better to give it than get it.
It is better to give it than get it.
No matter who is used to get it done.

'Where is 'this' coming from? '

Isn't this your reality?
Or is it just another 'figment' of my 'deluded' imagination?
