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?

Painfully Self Absorbed

What standards can be claimed to stay
Valued.
And who is it that remains proud,
Of their biased activities...
That has allowed divisions and hatred
To succeed.
As cracks in established foundations,
Continue to widen to invite...
More of those most faithful to devote
