Leftovers - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Save your leftovers,
And don't you think about it.
Throwing them out to just,
Waste away.
Away.

Save...
Those leftovers.
Don't throw them out to just,
Waste away.
Today.

People are coming to their senses,
With no defense.
People are easier to convince today...
When they see so many in need,
And...
Pretending not to be hungry.

Don't you throw leftovers out,
Because they satisfied that taste you've got.
The needy people have increased.
So share with others,
What you don't eat.

People,
Are coming to their senses.
Don't you throw leftovers out,
Because they satisfied...
That taste you've got.

People,
Are coming to their senses.
The needy people have increased.
So share they do,
What they don't eat.

People,
Are easier to convince today...
When they see so many in need,
And...
Pretending not to be hungry.

People,
Are easier to convince today...
When they see so many in need,
And...
Pretending not to be hungry.

People,
Are coming to their senses.
The needy people have increased.
So share they do,
What they don't eat.

People,
Are coming to their senses.
Don't you throw leftovers out,
Because they satisfied...
That taste you've got.
