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?

That Song

Carry on,
With a humming along that song.
That song to sing,
When things appear to go wrong.

Keep it to hear as if a soothing lullaby.
To replace those sighs to push aside,
Temptations to be dragged into the shadows...
Of the darkside of life.

[Hata Bildir]
