    Give me reasons to give
    I can’t see tomorrow for the take
    Hands out, always squeezing
    Together we stand apart, to be noticed!
    Contemplating on which way to run
    d
    n
    a
    t
    S

    Now hear your number being called
    Something for nothing packaged up nice in a row…
    Stand here, Get one and get on…

    Back track, taste of it and put it back

    Never something for nothing…never dat…
    Pay the man and See the forest through the trees
    Living life to the fullest vicariously..

    Something for nothing does not exist, everything has a price, one way or another. You give us something to think about.

    What a proverbial flow. The words really hold one's attention and make you think. After all, this is what a poem should do and yours did it well. :spinn:
