Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Delivered In June On the Fifteenth Day
And not just a few who refuse to listen,
Or attempt to comprehend...
Someone else's point of view,
But continues pursuing with a doing...
What they please and want to do,
To include a passing of judgements...
And giving their unsolicited opinions too,
Will eventually fact the errors of their ways.
This is inevitable with a lesson taught that stays.
And those experienced in avoiding to evade,
Their own stubbornness have been confronted.
With a knowing it isn't delusion but the power of truth,
That can not be played with to escape from it to dupe.
And when and 'if' through tears that fall,
One who had denied their ignorance has stalled...
Will come face to face with a brick wall,
To find their lips have been shut tight and quick...
Since a learning process overdue has finally begun.
And on that day they will recognize with eyes wide,
Who has become the receiver of a benefit undenied.
With a stunning revelation what is meant to listen.
Even if this should mean a suffering through a pain,
That overwhelmingly stings one stung done to gain.
To be delivered in June on the fifteenth day,
Of the year two thousand and thirteen to retain.
