Hi all! Been away (physically, emotionally, and spiritually) for a while. Dropped in and read Lady A's and Kate C's latest...Thought I'd share my sentiments on this subject as well. I'll be gone for a while again but will return at some point. Take care!!!



 

Takers, fakers, liars, wimps,
Tugging at the sleeves
Needy, greedy, deviants
More, more, more, Me, Me
Succubae control freaks
Psycho-babbling fools
Stringing bait for trusting souls
To dissect with unclean tools


Unseen motives, impure thoughts
Cloaked with words of care
The lure of favors with a price
Or tales of their despair
Used car geeks, and lonely tweaks,
Pompous and contrived
They prey upon oneís kindness
and drain them of their life

This moved me to tears.
I feel a haiku coming,
It's all in the wink
