As a Public Service


There are times when we need to be more outgoing
To look for ways to help others as a public service
So I was thinking of ways I might also contribute
And seeing this sign, I thought why not try this.

I’ve always tried to pay attention to each task
To be hands-on and to handle things with care
Whether the task seemed large or it was small
Each should be given the attention that was fair.

Understanding the reason for the task is important
Possibly this task is leading to a different result
Not needing the detail that another might have need
Yet maybe what is needed is a very thorough consult.

Each service will need to be handled in its own way
Discretion may be as important as the job that’s picked
No matter the effort needed to make sure it is done well
Never give up on this until you are able to get it licked.
