Please, go away

Many, many years ago,
I was told and taught 
That helping people is a considerate thought.
But there is something else to know.

Ungrateful people are of a sort
Rewarding generosity with a shattering blow,
And quite happily taking a friend for a foe.
But who would have thought?

It won’t worry them to get me caught
In trouble or fraught
And they are not slow 
To show how ignorant they grow.

Now, I really wish to say to this lot
That my opinion of them is very low.
But words keep sticking in my throat.
And I just let things go.

May be one day
Shyness will wear away
And I’ll be able to say 
To these people: “Please, go away!”

    Some people can be very shallow and take things for granted, but there are some that know a good thing when they see it. The ignorant people of the world will get what they deserve. Welcome to PoetrySoup. -Leigh Anne
