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!
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! '

Members Of A Tribe

With values wished to relive,
As a treasure expected...
From one generation to the next.
Can not sustain to remain,
That same kind of mindset.
If what had been valued,
Loses reason, purpose and effect.
Without a projected respect,
To have gone neglected to teach it.
