Poetry Thursday 121 - If the cap fits!

Human interactions are fraught with pitfalls. The problems that arise range from minor spats to wars, and perhaps it is due to what is in today's offering.


If the cap fits

You just can’t trust them
no matter how long you’ve known them.
They are only interested in one thing,
those aspects of life that benefit them.

Thirty years is no measure to them,
dependability only illusory in them.
They are only interested in one thing,
those aspects of life that benefit them.

No matter what you do for them
irrespective of the gratitude you show them.
They are only interested in one thing,
those aspects of life that benefit them.

Irrelevant all that’s done for you by them,
regardless of the generosity from them.
They are only interested in one thing,
those aspects of life that benefit them.

Charities may receive support from them,
religion may succour them.
They are only interested in one thing,
those aspects of life that benefit them.

The terrible lurking shame for them,
is where trust seems to lie for them.
They appear to be interested in only one thing
but whatever, it is unaware of them.
