Maybe you’re the kind of one
Who likes to pass things out…
Helping Momma or yourself,
With a giggle or shout.
I will pass my poetry
To those who appreciate…
This form of creativity,
Their reaction “pays the freight”.**
My boss stopped me at work
From handing out my nuggets of joy…
I guess possibly offending someone
Would affect his and my employ.
There’s a third-shift cashier–actually two—
For which I keep a smile…
They have no computer access
So I share with them a while.
One or two folks near home or at work
Get a copy, if it’s something good…
One or two folks I work with,
My poetry, have understood.
NOTE**: To “pay the freight” is another way of saying you get enough back by doing it to make it worth your while…worth your effort.
