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! '

The Laws Of Exploitation

Exploited.
Hunted and sought,
As if items reduced purposely...
To seduce a selling,
Of what is bought at a lower price.
And made to feel to stay cheapened.
By a marketing device,
Prolonged to remain in minds that way.
