You Do Not Give by T.W. Snicket

There are just things you must consider
during the work week

You do not give your best customers
average cords of wood
They get the seasoned

You do not give your best customers
the bottom shelf
They get the 20 year

You do not give your best customers
a sales pitch
They get the gods honest truth

You do not give your best customers
advice
you give them guidance

And when it comes to friends;
Well, there are things you must consider
during a lifetime

You do not give your best friends
an address
You draw them a map

You do not give your best friends
assistance
you give your time

You do not give your best friends
encouragement
you give them inspiration

You do not give your best friends
support
you give them love

Day to day
and throughout your life
There are just things you must consider
