Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)


Excused deceptions.
Yet deceptions used,
None the less.
That's what alibis are.

And those who revere alibis,
Pride as if prized...
For their quickness to tell lies.
Treating those who do not,
As losing fools.

And those who seem to be depicted,
As fools...
More than likely live better lives,
With few or no excuses to make to anyone.
