Lawrence S. Pertillar Poems
$10 A Gallon?
$10 a gallon?
'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! '
If And But Free
The time has arrived,
To leave behind...
Those treasured moments reminisced,
With the best of good intentions meant...
To do what had been desired and wished,
Left alone to forget.
Make this a promise and stick to it.
Know the 'ifs' and 'buts' of life,
