Just To Please Others - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is easier to criticize,
Those with rolled up sleeves.
And digging others out of ditches.
Just to please others,
Who pursue selfish wishes.

It is easier to pass judgements,
On a few who do the work.
While those who sit,
Licking fingers dry...
From eating fried chicken.
To say what someone else should do,
Among others who too...
Choose to live lazy lives to defend.

Easier it is to criticize and often,
Those with rolled up sleeves.
And digging others out of ditches.
While sitting with it done to excuse,
Every movement made to do without shoes.
To say there is no time to find...
Eliminating from a limited mind,
An addiction fixed to procrastination.
