Something for the daily prompt. Also just a question, when we give do we get?

What we Get

Walking down the street

Walking down the street Not knowing what to expect

Walking down the street Not knowing what to expect But it never really came to mind

Walking down the street Not knowing what to expect But it never really came to mind That you'd be giving your respect

As you stroll down the street

As you stroll down the street Wallet and phone in hand

As you stroll down the street Wallet and phone in hand You casually walk through the city

As you stroll down the street Wallet and phone in hand You casually walk through the city Not even trying to understand

On the ground is a man

On the ground is a man You think he is a bit scrawny

On the ground is a man You think he is a bit scrawny So you toss him down a $10 bill

On the ground is a man You think he is a bit scrawny So you toss him down a $10 bill Maybe enough money to buy something bonny

He throws it back

He throws it back "What were you thinking" he shouts

He throws it back "What were you thinking" he shouts I might have sat here all alone

He throws it back "What were you thinking" he shouts I might have sat here all alone But that doesn't mean I'm in a money drought

I don't need your filthy money

I don't need your filthy money What you give is what you get

I don't need your filthy money What you give is what you get I might get a few bucks

I don't need your filthy money What you give is what you get I might get a few bucks But you'll get a large quartet

All the praise for giving to the poor

All the praise for giving to the poor In some instances all the fame

All the praise for giving to the poor In some instances all the fame What you give to me isn't at all wanted

All the praise for giving to the poor In some instances all the fame What you give to me isn't at all wanted Charity is just misnamed

When you give from a wallet that small

When you give from a wallet that small Other folks call you a savior

When you give from a wallet that small Other folks call you a savior But to me it's just an act

When you give from a wallet that small Other folks call you a savior But to me it's just an act So get away and take your altruistic behavior

Sometimes it's like that What we give is what we get They might get a few bucks But in truth we get a singing quartet -Raeth ❤
