Even when the task at hand
Will determine their future,
Not understanding that

In the game of life.

They won't be respectful
To me or to my partners
Who are trying to be nice,
They've lost all sense of
Responsibility and duty,
My mercy is wearing thin.

They interrupt at the worst
Moments for their own
Selfish reasons for a quick
Laugh or false acceptance.
They need to learn life isn't
About those who seek
