Where To Locate The Evidence - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Play Poem Video

One need not go to distances far,
To trap a rat with a doing to reveal...
Who deceives a trust.
And it should not be a prolonged mystery,
Where to locate the evidence.

'Remember what I told you to keep to yourself?
And you promised me you'd never tell anyone else? '

~Of course I remember.
You know me.~

'You have no idea.
Well, something else has come up.
And I know from my lips to your ears,
No one but 'you' will ever hear.'

~Oh please share.
You know what you tell me isn't going anywhere.~

'Well...
You don't know how I hope not!
I am reluctant.
But I have no one else to tell.
However...
My neighbor has begun to have wild sex parties.'

~Noooo?
Didn't she just bury her husband weeks ago?
And isn't she in her seventies? ~

~Ssshhh.
That's what I'm saying.
And...
You would NEVER believe the ages,
Of the men AND women.
You should see them,
Parading back and forth through here.
AFTER midnight.
Between 1 and 3 AM.~

'You're kidding?
Both men AND women?
What time was that? '

~Between 1 AND 3 AM.
Young too.
But promise me you wont tell a soul.~

'You know me.
I aint about to say 'nuthin'.
That's much too hot.
Who would believe me? '
