Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Suitable For Scrutiny


Conscious minds,
With thoughts to think.
And constantly seeking answers...
For that which does not make sense,
Or connects to link.

This detachment from a foolishness,
Sets those apart...
To be,
Suitable for scrutiny.
Suitable to be watched and peeped.

Independent with intent.
And has purpose that is meant.
Identity strong and proud to be,
Among seekers of comprehension...
Taking charge to rule their own destinies.
And...
Suitable for scrutiny.
Suitable to be watched and peeped.
Suitable to be suspected,
To have a peace and freedom...
With capabilities to see,
Deception in progress not for them accepted.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
