You Are In For Quite A Surprise - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You have only been solicited,
To assist in their progess...
And for their benefit.
When that is done,
You are kicked to the curb...
Like everyone who has come.
To discover they are not the only ones.

Don't think to them you are special!
You should have known that,
As a fact before you arrived.
Don't look to them to keep that vision rising.
If you do...
You are in for quite a surprise.
This is about 'them'!
Not about you in their eyes!
