Lawrence S. Pertillar Poems
$10 A Gallon?
$10 a gallon?
'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! '
Showing Of An Interest
The best interests to have and express,
Are those interests best kept to yourself.
Some people can be joy killers.
Wanting from you your point of view.
Then make claim to others,
That interest in them you had expressed...
Had not been really an interest.
But an act done,
For no more then to impress.
