Good ol' Mr Generous

Good Ol' Mr Generous walks into the bar
gives his pals a wink
they've been waiting for him, see, to buy the drinks.

Good Ol' Mr Generous loves to comply
and flashes his cash
gets in the beers and pies.

Good Ol' Mr Generous is green as grass
he sees the best in everyone
after all, where there's muck there's brass!

But, Good Ol' Mr Generous is poor as can be
with debts and bills as long as a tree
in truth he has no money for tea
but he can never let his friends see
so

Good Ol' Mr Generous buys the next round too
even one for Bill and crazy, old Sue
some cheeky swines even order two!

Good Ol' Mr Generous, the king of the bar
his pals say 'ta' (you stupid fool)
Good Ol' Mr Generous has no car 
and is being a right tool!

When the money is gone
Good Ol' Mr Generous asks his pals for a drink
and without a moment to think
his good ol' pals are gone
see Good Ol' Mr Generous
has been a right arse
and has wasted his dosh
on a bunch of hyenas.

    This is one prime example of why we must choose our friends wisely....I have seen friends give their last dime to help, and I have seen so-called friends take, and take until there was nothing left for them to get...I have found distance works wonders, the further away from them the better off...I enjoyed this write, take care, always, Christy
