Loopholes - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It's known and shown,
Those habits grown.

You come too early,
And you...
Announce you can't stay late.
But then,
Every minute you're around...
You hesitate to conversate.

What is it you're wishing?
Should we investigate?
Are you wishing we dish less?
Does this irritate?

You're living a life that's full of loopholes you hold.
You need to lick them quick.
Get rid of those sitting to nitpick.

You're living a life that's full of loopholes you hold.
Let them slip through your lips.
And live a life that benefits.

It's known and shown,
Those habits grown.

What is it you're wishing?
Should we investigate?
Are you wishing we dish less?
Does this irritate?

You're living a life that's full of loopholes you hold.
Let them slip through your lips.
And live a life that benefits.

You're living a life that's full of loopholes you hold.
You need to lick them quick.
Get rid of those sitting to nitpick.

You're living a life that's full of loopholes you hold.
Let them slip through your lips.
And live a life that benefits.

Get rid of those loopholes,
Admit they make you sick!
