On being ‘taken for a ride’

What constitutes being taken advantage of?

Is it any interaction you have with others

Where you don’t come out on top?

Any situation where you give

More than you receive?

When someone doesn’t say “thank you” ?

When people don’t behave as you expect them to?

Or perhaps any situation that leaves you exhausted?

If these are our definitions of

Being taken for a ride

Then what we are really saying

Is that we only want to interact with others

When the personal gains

Are obvious and immediate,

Because nothing good can come

From letting someone else get ahead,

Right?
