Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
An adult I am and familiar with adult themes.
Pretentious intentions I do not premeditate.
I have learned to address what it takes to face truth.
And I must confess at times it is difficult,
To keep my patience with a tolerance kept...
When so many immature are offended by a directness,
They can not accept, condone or respect for what it is.
