Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Below The Water
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? '
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,
