Very Little Time To Spend Socializing - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It takes much more than talk...
To produce results.
And more than taking notes,
At a meeting.

It takes much more,
Than asking questions...
To define a reason,
That might combine with one's whine!

In the process of 'doing'...
And getting that achieved,
Is a process not too many...
Are disciplined enough to accomplish.

Many people would rather socialize,
And discuss what should be on an agenda.
Than to acknowledge what they've done,
To set their deeds in motion.

The ones pursuing those missions,
Find very little time to spend socializing.
With or without,
Embellishing what they've done.
About to do...or plan!

'You can't expect everyone,
To feel the same way you do...
About what it is you do! '

That seems to be more your campaign than mine.
I don't have time to expect anything from anyone!
I guess that's why I call it,
My business!
You know...
Like stay out of it!
