Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

No Depth at All

You wanna play head games,
And I ain't gonna 'trip' like that.
Shallow, insecure hide and seek...
In the hopes to attract a playmate,
Willing to compete.

These 'acts' of innocence,
Are cute to say the least.
For someone your age...
This shows your have no depth at all.
Or anything worthy to find OR keep!

    I am often intrigued by those who hide behind pseudonyms
    and make declarations they feel are profound...
    and substantial.
    And for this we all pay a price!

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
