Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
For You... I Will Go Along With It
I will admit what I observe daily,
Does not exist with a worthiness to mention.
It will be difficult.
But for you...
I will go along with it.
I am ready to do this.
Only 'if' you admit,
You have a preference for sugar and spice.
With a wish to keep prioritized,
The nice and bright side of life kept highlighted.
And that which you dislike,
I will assist in keeping 'your' illusions alive.
To then pretend we are totally unaffected.
Until we both get home to realize...
Time to take to feed upon delusions,
Does not satisfy the reality of our limits.
When you should ask,
What it is I plan to prepare for us to eat?
I will reply...
'The feast is in the eye of the beholder.'
