Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Strongly Suggested And Advisable
If anyone wants to be taken seriously,
Investing first in gaining crediblity...
Is strongly suggested and advisable.
Since adopting a fast track way,
To obtain acceptance in some influential circles...
Just to be seen hob nobbing amongst,
The movers and shakers who themselves charade...
Does not guarantee a long lasting approval.
Dressing the part no longer impresses those awake.
Spotting instantly those who seek,
To glamorize every entrance they make.
They may or may 'not' be fake.
The odds are not in their favor.
