Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Innocence Expressed And Accepted


Anyone who will do anything,
With intent to take advantage of another...
Will do this time and again.
And...
Expect to be forgiven.
Like a child expecting their innocence expressed,
And accepted to know they will be protected...
By someone fooled and bamboozled.

Deception has become a pre-requisite these days.
And truth?
Many have found the doing offensive.

And 'if' that child is not effectively corrected,
Expect the blooming of nonsense to become the adult...
That perceives any misdeed,
Is not their responsibility to confess.
Or should they be placed in a position,
To be held accountable for their actions.

Deception has become a pre-requisite these days.
With a doing to contribute to their teachings.

Especially with these types of lessons taught,
To fault and blame to shame...
With the right dose of character assassination.
And undeniable evidence of this is in the observation.
Once eyes and ears are open wide.
To see those who betray running to hide,
From their own creations.

With a leaving anyone conscious,
Fully awake and comprehends...
A needing not to be intimidated by debates.
Or interpretations in wasted discussions,
As to who should be convinced of that which is witnessed.
Since the taste of a served cake, pudding or pie,
Is what it is and nothing more to describe, deny or lie about...
Can defend the reality of a mess those overdosed with delusion,
Have left to refuse the doing of it done.

'Trust us to 'clinically' remove with precision,
Any pain unintentionally inflicted.
We ask for your continued patience and faith.
Although we can not guarantee,
A successful outcome anyone should expect for our efforts.
However...
We have been down this road before.
Haven't we? '

~What's up with this 'WE' business? ~

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
