Responsibility - Poem by Pookey's Poems

You want to be taken serious
But you don’t want to do the work
Time to get off your ass
And do the promises you start

Wanting responsibility
Means you can be relied on
And not following through
Means you’ve played us a con

Good intentions get you so far
It works for only for a while
When you string us along
Your word will mean nothing at all

Be respectful of your family
And not lie to their face
Because it just may come back
Like a slap across the face

So don’t be surprised
When the consequences are weighed
They might come from your pocket
Or our promises made

So come clean with the lies
We can work it all out
But don’t bite the hand that feeds you
You don’t want to go without
