I Refuse To Have My Mind Rattled - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've got my shoes shine bright,
With a smile that shows...
Wherever I go,
My troubles aren't with me to follow.

I've got a look that reflects confidence.
No matter if I don't have a single cent.
Or the people think I pay no rent at all.
Because I don't complain with contempt.
Or...
Go around creating problems to invent.

I refuse...
To get into an argument.
I refuse...
To get upset with that intent.
I refuse...
To have my peace and patience spent.
And I refuse...
To have my mind rattled to snap.
Yes I refuse...
To have my mind rattled.

I re-fuse...
To get into an argument.
I refuse...
To get upset with that intent.
I refuse...
To have my peace and patience spent.
And I refuse...
To have my mind rattled to snap.
Yes I refuse...
To have my mind rattled.

I've got a look that reflects confidence.
No matter if I don't have a single cent.
Or the people think I pay no rent at all.
Because I don't complain with contempt.
Or...
Go around creating problems to invent.

I refuse...
To get into an argument.
I refuse...
To get upset with that intent.
I refuse...
To have my peace and patience spent.
And I refuse...
To have my mind rattled to snap.
Yes I refuse...
To have my mind rattled.

I've got my shoes shine bright,
With a smile that shows...
Wherever I go,
My troubles aren't with me to follow.
Because,
I re-fuse...
To get into an argument.
I refuse...
To get upset with that intent.
I refuse...
To have my peace and patience spent.
And I refuse...
To have my mind rattled to snap.
Yes I refuse...
To have my mind rattled.
Yes I refuse...
To have my mind rattled to snap.
I refuse...
To have my mind rattled.
