Just a comedic observational view of people...mainly the givers and the takers.
I could be talking about a law of physics
When I speak of how opposites attract
It's also in us that this law applies
Is this opinion or is it in fact a fact?

There are in general two types of people
They are the givers and the takers
Both these types see something in the other
Good guy's and bad...movers and shakers

Because I'm one of the good guy's
It's the givers that are my team
We always feel hard done by
“Poor me!!” is our cheer squad’s scream

But in the interests of fairness
The takers should have their say
“If it were not for us takers...
Where would you givers give it away?”

“The takers provide a service
That the givers obviously need”
“Or else they wouldn't give so much”
“Without the takers you'd be a sorry lot indeed”

Tired of being taken by those dirty rascal takers
The givers stop their giving to show they are not fakers
The takers are unmoved exclaiming “We don't give a toss!!”
“You givers do whatever you want it will be at your own loss!!”

Alone at last the givers look to give but then they find
A giver loves to give but taking is not on their mind
“Without anyone to give to we really are a sorry lot”
Meanwhile at the takers no one is giving away squat

A solution is what is needed so a delegation is formed
There needs to be a compromise and some attitudes conformed
When the dust had settled and their attitudes were sacked
The laws of physics do apply when opposites attract
