The Give Up Twist Can't Be Missed!

We all know that you shouldn't give up if you want something at your sea. At least in most cases that come to be. If you want to rob a bank, give up, or walk the plank. But then it gets a twist with a flick of the wrist.

Don't give up.
Fills a cup.
Bet it's on the side.
Fills one with pride.

Hang in there.
A cat with hair.
Or would that be kitten?
Humans are smitten.

But what of the twist?
One hoped to be missed.
It comes and goes.
Mostly from foes.

Foes as friends.
Never depends.
Use and peruse.
Lit that fuse.

You can't give up.
Don't be a pup.
You are almost done.
Come with me for fun.

You can't give up.
Don't suffer a hiccup.
We are the mighty few.
Yeah, you too.

You need to buy that.
Find a way where you are at.
You really, really, really need it.
So rob a bank or some shit.

You need to get that done.
Yeah, make those people run.
Don't give up yet.
Use crap from a pet.

Not the right car for you?
Don't give up at your zoo.
Look, there is one over here.
We will find one, have no fear.

Not the right this or that?
We won't chew the fat.
We will find it and take your money.
Don't give up on us, honey.

See how it gets twisted about? Ever notice the don't give up twisted shout? Don't give up writing I will say. But on such idiots, give up any old day. And then run far far away. You'll be better off and keep your pay. Then you could leave them some gas, that works for my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.
