Best Poem of Lawrence S. Pertillar

$10 A Gallon?

$10 a gallon?
For what?

'Does that really matter now?
When it approached
One dollar per gallon...
You should have voiced your concern then!
Not when your pockets have gotten thin.
And deepened to hold more lint!
You want to make cents?
Put these sunglasses on.
Grab a twig from a bush...
And get to begging!
MAYBE...
You might gain some sympathy,
From someone who recognizes you are in disguise.
And they are in the mood,
To share with you their good attitude.
IF they have some of 'that' left! '

Read the full of $10 A Gallon?

Get On To Get Off

Someone who had been allowed,
To approach you using the right weapons...
With charm you approved,
Flattered to shatter your close relationship.
And as time has passed,
Many lessons you have learned...
About holding on to grasp firmly,
That which others may not like to entice...
Your decision to end that happiness had.

[Hata Bildir]
