The Welfare Poem

The welfare poem is not for you and not enough for anyone. The welfare poem is very small and not just given to everyone. It's not enough to read for long. It's just a little short. It's not paid much attention to and not the longing sort. With thanks there's those who'll get it. Those of who deserve it. It's just some stolen words, though I would soon forget it. It's filled with much disgrace. Those wary as they read. It may be meant for you if you accept the need. I hope you have enjoyed it. I'll cut you off for now. But if you want more later just beg there's more somehow.

This made me laugh. Just so good. I'd written my own money poem/song n thought Who can do better than this? I had a look about and found a few this being one. Good show!
