What It Is That Keeps Them Effective - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Maybe it's not ready for you to get yet!
Like a wishing for Spring and through Summer you've slept.
And maybe it's not ready for you to get quite yet!
'Cause if it was in your mind it'd be there to be kept.
And in your mind it'd be there to be left.

Maybe it's not ready for you to get just yet!
'Cause if it was you would not have overslept to fret,
If it's Summer, Winter, Spring that's coming next...
Without it dawning in the morning if you've passed the test!
And maybe you don't need to know in your mind to keep kept,
What it is you need to be effective.

Maybe it's not ready for you to get just yet!
What it is that leaves you effective.

Some do,
And some don't...
Know what it is that keeps them effective!

Some do,
And some don't...
Stay alert with a keeping effective!

Some do,
And some don't...
Make sure they remain effective.

Some do,
While some just don't....
Know what it takes to keep them effective!
