Stop … please

When is this going to stop, this giving beyond our means,
it will lead to unpleasant scenes,
on and off our TV screens,
if we do not restrain and rain in this irresponsible sharing,
this devil may care sparing,
this gross decline in standards of propriety,
weaving such a dense fabric of society,
we will not be a able to see our selves from the trees
of mutual needs and shared responsibilities,
please I beg you please keep what is yours to yourself,
to share is to devalue the wealth; what we have is not ours,
spread between us value looses its powers
of persuasion, of concentration, of the mitigation
of a circumstance that has the myth of chance used to entrance,
