help yourself

people like to gripe
but you know it's all hype
if they weren't pleased
they'd be quick to leave

can you help me he whined
then my friend said no
but if you're inclined
we can tell you where to go

if you need a hand
it's at the end of your arm
you know you understand
work will do you no harm

i've met a few who had reason to cry
but they never contemplated lying down to die
they did what they could to make it through the day
working so hard they had no time to pray
