There Are Those

There Are Those


There are those that give and those

that take

There are those that fly and those

that snake


There are those that prose and those

that verse

There are those that pray and those

that curse


There are those that whisper and those

that shout

There are those that are in and those

that are out


There are those that love and those

that hate

There are those that thirst and those

that slake


There are those that hide and those

that seek

There are those that laugh and those

that weep


There are those that do and those

that don’t

There are those that should and those

that wont


There are those that run and those

that fight

There are those that hunger and those

with no appetite


And then there are those ……….

                              and verse
