Below The Water - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Debating whether or not,
The floodgates should be closed...
Comes a little too late.
Don't you think?

'And why do you say that?
Why can't you think positively,
Like the rest of us? '

Well...
Since many seem to be swimming,
Towards the rescue boats.
And the floodgates now appear,
To be below the water.
I just thought this fact would be noticed.

'Are you going to debate with us or not? '

I 'think' I would rather row my boat to shore 'first'.

Whatever you say,
Michael.
