Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Neither Suggested or Recommended
Those in the 'know'
Do what they can,
To keep others inspired.
But this should not be done,
At the expense of burdens weighed
By another who implants their footprints,
Upon anyone's shoulders.
God has this power to do this.
We may try hard to play God.
But that is neither suggested,
