Chronic Problems (With Added Gratuity)

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

For too long...
And with it known to be shown,
Many have come to hear it...
From those who moan and groan.
Done for years.
About the existence,
Of their chronic problems.

And for years despised...
Have been the ones criticized,
For having the audacity...
To offer suggestions to correct
Their problems to end them.
With solutions that were best.
Without paying the expense,
To have 'professionals' come...
From distances.
With recommendations suggested,
As to how best to solve...
Their ongoing problems.
How they may have started.
And a possible way to end them.

The visitors are applauded.
Wined and dined.
And leave an exorbitant bill...
Those heard to moan and groan,
With added gratuity.
