" ...To share with you their good attitude. IF they have some of 'that' left! ' " I feel the sentiment of that line so often so much.

Lawrence, A haunting poem, long after you have gone through it. Calling back again and again. Ordinary words, but extraordinary poetry. It just as Rabindranath Tagore wrote: That words have meanings is just the difficulty. That is why the poet has to turn ans twist them in meter and verse, so that the meaning may be held some what in check and the feeling allowed a chance to express itself. Yes, Lawrence, you have achieved a free flow of feelings. Much above the meanings and words. That is what poetry really is. Excellent. Congrats. Keep writing.

You might gain some sympathy, From someone who recognizes you are in disguise. And they are in the mood, To share with you their good attitude. IF they have some of 'that' left! ' Truly, if they don't recognize, then nothing and if recognized, the good attitude should be left in them The poem brings out the fading goodness in man and conveys the great message Loved reading the poem and added to my poem list

Well done - despite the golden rule that says you need to avoid figures that will date the poem! ($10 a gallon? Cheap at the price..}

Perhaps a haiku would go like this: Mustn't complain, Should have complained, Why didn't I complain. We have to stop believing the BS and start standing up to these corporations and their pupets in our Governments.-10
