The kindness Dept Collector

Like a store that sells all its good deeds in kind
There is nothing like personal dept to bind
Two people together, when one faces bad weather
Like a knot round the neck, always there to remind.

A silver-tongued fox might get what it desires.
It deceives and it lies and it cries and it bribes
It believes that it's tough, yet it’s not tough enough
As its strength comes from others, when it needs and requires.

What is your need, when you give to receive?
When your kindness needs earning, it's so hard to believe.
If you cant give for free, do you deserve that from me?
If that's true I will write a receipt as i leave.
