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! '

Today And Not Yesterday

It's not difficult to keep,
One or two steps ahead...
Of those refusing to leave,
The 1950's.
Or stopping to overhear conversations wishing,
Better education for undisciplined kids.
Showing less respect than their parents did.

It's not difficult to keep,

[Hata Bildir]
