Not Seeking A Free Lunch - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Give me the illiterate.
And those illegitimate,
With the negative sentiments.
Made by those disgruntled...
With expressed opinions sent.
Although not facing,
Similar predicaments.

And I will show you a people,
As proud as they can be...
To work and struggle harder,
To prove themselves...
Not out to seek a free lunch!
Like most everyone else...
Looking for a sweetened life,
Easy for them to munch.

Or accepting handouts believed,
Given to those too ignorant to know...
Who patronizes them,
In an 'asumed' defeat.
And not realize,
They too recognize an opportunity...
To get themselves on their own two feet.
