Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
I'm Into Profits
Based upon the quality.
Presentation and preparation.
Taste and the unique use of ingredients.
And the excitement that fulfills,
And anticipated wait.
I would say...
Perhaps if a higher rating was given,
To the other offerings on the menu...
Maybe one day they too will excell.
'I admire your desire.
But it's your philosophy...
Will kill this business.'
That's a lot of nonsense.
People are sold on how a product is marketed.
Not on value, substance or credibility.
It's just my philosophy.
Don't think for a moment,
I will give up something I find delicious.
There is a huge difference between getting business done,
And the reality of using effective deception.
I'm into profits.
