A third of me must go to you,
Else you are Hitler and I the helpless Jew.
By taking from me you feel nice,
Ever wonder if I feel wise?
By making me obey you feel just,
As a man then happy I be is must.
From my largess you build your temples,
Visit you there and I get rumples.
Your chosen ones hover around me to guard,
For attention I part more coins earned hard.
What use dear you are to me,
My obeisance makes me slave to thee.
Do I err if I want to be dealt nice and duly,
Do I fear to even think you are one big bully?
Your beauty and strength emanates from me,
Yet I wait to meet you while you sip tea.
I want to dally with you, look forward to be cared,
Not only you do ignore me but when you glance I get scared!
Still I want your love and am willing to serve,
Will you make me wanted, as I deserve.
I know it’s a long haul but I want to make you mine,
Oh my government of this day will you be my valentine?
Will this petition government to look at citizens as humans and not revenue targets?
