Only If The Doing It Shows! - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Does a giving of an empathy,
Provide a gift of pity?
'Only if the doing it shows! '

Well.
Well, well...
Now,
And does a listening to pain gain strength,
Of maintaining the sustaining of woes?
'Only if the doing it shows! '

And do those weeping eyes appeal,
To those...
Who feed,
Their needs...
From seeing the increase,
Of the homeless and hungry...
Trying to sleep,
With nothing to eat...
On the city streets?
'Only if the doing it shows! '

Does a giving of an empathy,
Provide a gift of pity?
'Only if the doing it shows! '

And do those weeping eyes appeal,
To those...
Who feed their needs,
From seeing...
The increase,
Of the homeless and hungry...
Trying to sleep,
With nothing to eat...
On the city streets?
'Only if the doing it shows! '

Well.
Well, well...
Now,
Only if the doing it shows,
To those...
Who see it.
Only if the doing it shows!
And only if the doing it shows,
To those...
Who see it.
With a giving of an empathy,
To pity.
And only if the doing it shows!
To those...
Who see it.
And only if the doing it shows!

'Yes!
And you're correct.
Now stay with the rhythm,
And let it infest.'

Only if the doing it shows!
'That's right.'
And only if the doing it shows.
'That's correct.'
Only if the doing it shows!
'That's right.'
And only if the doing it shows.
'That's correct.'
