Counterfeit or Genuine the Choice is ours
By David Smith June 2012
A counterfeit bill the suspicion was real
An older series without the security appeal
Refused to be accepted at a coffee shop on Queen
Told it was counterfeit and asked where it had been
Exchanged it at the bank where a new bill takes its place
The old bill out of service as it was now replaced.
Where to draw the line, when to accuse and when to accept
Questions from within
Our reputation and character we get
Reputation from what others think and the judgments that they make
Character from within as our integrity is at stake
What people may think as we walk on shady ground
But having a clear conscience is confidence to be found.
A counterfeit judgement where character is on trial
The trying of integrity for a life that is worthwhile
O what a joy to prepare for a test
Counterfeit or genuine as we present our best
Always judge our inner self with morality from within
When suspicion is in question correction can begin.
Be thankful for security checks as we progress on our way
Our reputation is evaluated every time of day.
