Some folks tend to get all bent out if shape

When they get answers, but consider them late
So then they write off the earlier connection
Leaving others to do some hasty introspection

... Something I've been doing too much of, lately
And so, I suspect it's time to pull back and be free
For those who desire immediacy of needs filled
Probably would be better off having other thrills

The long haul is the one which really pays off
For the overall scope seen is never scoffed ...
And thus, those who stick around and enjoy
Will endure longer than those who use toys
