Free Beer

I don’t want another one

I have had one

And that was enough

Don’t get me another

For this free beer always gets into way of so many things….

I have learned to hate free beers

So many strings attached I say my brother

Too much hidden expectations I declare my sister

Come clean and state the price

I will pay

Everything has a price no matter how steep or low

I don’t want another free beer…

Price Tag

Prominently displayed,
And in bold letters,
So that you may not miss it,
The price tag.
There it is.
Seated smugly.
Boldly proclaiming to all,
The price for the product or service.
It is a straight forward business,
You pick and go,
At the right price.
But pray I ask,
What about those things that don’t  come with price tags?
How is the value determined?
What is the price tag for;
Generosity?
Righteousness?
Honesty?
Patience?
Peace?
