something for nothing

waiting for the handout

watching for the omens

wanting the miracle NOW

if you please

do right for the sake

of doing right

and if you get a little extra

for yourself...well...O.K.

if you please

pray as if you expected

to receive it because

that means faith

a return on the investment

if you please

scavengers working

some shady corner of the psyche

to sponge on everything

in a range of 100 feet or more

if you please

and so self-pleased

pulled off another one

got over big time

and now to storm Heaven

if you please

but it's a narrow way

you can't fit through

with your purloined goods

now you have nothing for something

if you please...
