    I can say Lawrence is a good man. He encourages good poets. Hope he shoots down the bad ones. He writes very well. Great command of the English language (sadly murdered by the Ninjuns today on PH) . Lots of wit and wisdom in his poetry. I hope his poems have been published.17,874 poems is staggering! Lawrence, are you a poem-machine? ? ? ?

    I truly hope you've reached success on the Poetry Front. I couldn't find you on FB. But you must be somewhere. Keep up the good work!

    I've read a few of your poems selected at random, and I find them to be powerful, yet very well thought out. But over all, what impresess me the most, is your consistency and dedication. It is a pleasure reading your works. Greetings

    Hi lawrence. Your words are moving. They take semantics to exponential contexture.. Your poem Baffled is just. Please feel free to shed light on my poem Baffled as well. Nowvwe are two pioneers baffling esoteric linguistics..

    Lawrence is a very good Poet. He uses his words wisely
    and with distinction. I am very honored to be a part of
    of his poetry fellowship. In plain old fashioned words he
    does not Beat around the bush in his usage of the
    English language. Thanks to you honorable poet.

    Lawrence is a great poet. He knows how to make his poetry flow with good rhythm and rime, while at the same time he knows how to depict his message through his tone of voice. He is probably one of the great modern poets of all time.

  • Wahab Abdul Wahab Abdul (5/6/2012 10:35:00 AM)

    He is one of the greatest poems among the moderns, he is one of my favorites, he is innovative and leader of our time in the field of poetry.

Best Poem of Lawrence S. Pertillar

$10 A Gallon?

$10 a gallon?
For what?

'Does that really matter now?
When it approached
One dollar per gallon...
You should have voiced your concern then!
Not when your pockets have gotten thin.
And deepened to hold more lint!
You want to make cents?
Put these sunglasses on.
Grab a twig from a bush...
And get to begging!
You might gain some sympathy,
From someone who recognizes you are in disguise.
And they are in the mood,
To share with you their good attitude.
IF they have some of 'that' left! '

Read the full of $10 A Gallon?


When a mind is shut...
Don't try to pry it open.
It is better where it is decaying,
Left alone.
Leave it!
There is hope with others showing
Signs of response.
Those who are replusive...
Are already dead anyway!
