A HANDSHAKE AND YOUR WORD
Does it still exist, is it real, remember
A time when,
From so long ago when you learned to trust a man.
A handshake and your word was good enough for
Times changed and a lot of that got lost with a
We became less of neighbors, keeping to ourselves,
Now it seems that a handshake comes after a signed piece
Has its meaning become less, a firm handshake back in
Time was the best,
And your word, what is the worth of your word as you
We trust less now just as it must be fore if we trust
We may get burned,
Make sure there is a witness to a handshake and your
Word, Be weary.
I remember those times. “my word” had much to do with getting me through the hard times and when I had nothing else, people knew I kept my word & still do. I was naïve in realizing the world was changing and others didn’t value that. Like you mentioned, it’s simply not enough these days.
Thanks for your thoughts.
