Description

..In our society today, many have discounted and paid lip service to;
Honor, intellect, integrity, hard work, excellence
And so on in order to meet immediate needs and wants.
The prevalence of this phenomenon had led most to “beg” for;
Food, justice housing, relationships and even basic rights.
Consequently, Abnormality, on the background of depravity

..In our society today, many have discounted and paid lip service to;
Honor, intellect, integrity, hard work, excellence
And so on in order to meet immediate needs and wants.
The prevalence of this phenomenon had led most to “beg” for;
Food, justice housing, relationships and even basic rights.
Consequently, Abnormality, on the background of depravity
Lit by shades of mediocrity Has set the stage for many a circus of
countless figures in an Endless sequence of kneeling and bowing to
each other in the ploy to Succeed.
“Begging”,
The actual practice sounds demeaning,
Thus more dignified names have been used in disguise for it.
Lobbying or public Relations (PR),
As those who engage in various forms of official and other forms of
Begging would say, Has become an integral aspect of survival,
A necessary skill for success in this part of the globe.
Those apt at it have risen to enviable positions and
Expect it from those they deem beneath them.
Though by this we gave earned an
Unenviable reputation the various “halls of shame”,
The bitter taste this leaves suggests displeasure in the status quo.
Many believe that With Creativity and Independence,
Success is attainable without having to stoop to conformity,
(how strong this belief is, we may never know).
By whatever name we may choose to call it;
This never-ending spiral of 'lobbyists' in their insatiable search of
Opportunities for very personal gain,
Can at best be a case of ...BEGGARS begging BEGGARS.
